    Great place to visit, brings back memories from my childhood when watching the program on TV, all the old books are in there and all the prop’s from the making of the programme definitely worth a visit

    One of the best theme parks in Finland! There are good amount of rides for children (100m and above in height) with good options for adults too and many options to eat with. We did not have time to visit the aquarium and the petting zoo but heard they are good too.
    Would suggest that you take the unlimited ride pass

    This museum is the first Lenin museum that was founded outside of the Soviet Union and also simultaneously the last to remain to this day. It is located in the very same building where Lenin and Stalin first met each other, so it is quite a historical building on its own.

    The architecture of the building is interesting to look at and the museum is easy to locate within, the museum itself consist only of one large room. As you’d expect it focuses on Lenin’s life as well the Soviet Union in general, with a lot of talk about Stalin on the side.

    The displays are decent and offered in three languages – Finnish, Russian and English. There’s also a photo opportunity with dummies of Lenin and Stalin, you can even dress up for it. Decent museum, would recommend for those interest in history or if you just happen to be in the area.

    The small museum building near the Metso library is filled with mostly unknown works of local artist Joseph Alanen. He used tempera painting technique with light, shady colours to create mythical pictures of our national epic Kalevala. The chosen style resembles comic book characters with strongly painted outlines and extreme positions. The impressive Lemminkäinen and the Great Serpent was finished in 1920 just before his early death at the age of 34 in the current world epidemic Spanish fever.

    This interesting museum is located in the historic Finlayson factory area.

    The exhibitions offer an overview of the history of the industrial era and the social history of workers.

    At the same premises, you can also find the Steam Engine Museum.

    The building seen from above resembles a big male capercaillie in his pride so the library is known in Finnish as Metso. Architect couple Raili and Reima Pietiläs' design from 1986 has assymetrical lines and unexpected nooks both inside and out. The fame of Metso earned them the priviledge to create in 1993 Mäntyniemi in Helsinki, the formal residence of our president.

    This small museum is located in the Finlayson factory area. On a rainy day, it was easy to combine it with the Labour Museum Werstas. They are located next to each other.

    With a guided tour, the museum would have probably given more than exploring it just yourself.

    So our visit was short. Luckily the entrance was free with the Finnish Museum card.

    Visited the museum with friends. Impressive building in nice surrounding. Exhibition was around „still still life“. Interesting and different. Not too many people, which was good, due to limited amount of parking places

    This museum is located in a restored late-19th-century Näsi Castle in the middle of the lush Näsi Park.

    Milavida presents the glamorous and international lifestyle of the Nottbeck family, the owners of the famous Finlayson cotton mill.

    The temporary exhibition 'Carry me – 100 years of handbags' showcases the centenary story of the handbag.

    This museum is located in Hervanta, in the same premises as the Police University College. The museum is easily accessed from the city center with the new tram (line 3).

    The museum offers information about the Finnish police services throughout the time.

    In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum features changing special exhibitions. On our visit, it was 'The colored truth – Art crime in Finland'.

    The entrance is free. The museum is suitable for all ages.

    When I was to Vapriikki I also visited the Finnish Postal Museum, which tells the story of Finnish postal history and different phenomena around messaging and transporting in different decades. The Finnish Postal Museum has a vast collection of artifacts and photos as well as stamps published in Finland, along with philatelic special exhibitions.
