    Visited the Tampere 1918, Games, Natural history, Ice hockey, Findlayson & fairy tale sections.

    The games museum was hands down my favourite section with it recreations of rooms through the decades, it felt like a Time Machine.

    Tampere 1918 was interesting but I felt I learnt more having attended anothe Medien earlier in my trip with more English signage.

    The peppers ghost display in the Findlayson section was also quite cool

    Super cute and one of a kind. Really reasonable price at €14.50 for an adult. I would say you need no more then 1 hour in the exhibit. There are other attractions at this location also.

    Interesting museum but could do with a bit of polish & more interactivity. Given the name of the museum, tracking Lenin’s life more chronologically would be a plus. The immersive living room display is good. Unfortunately there was a lot of information presented on screens that required you to page through rather than dynamically communicated through exhibits.

    First of all, it's free. Tons of work related history. There was also an unrelated temporarily added photo exhibition.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Good content but displays are very tired & need updating. Lots of reading for items to make contextual sense. English guide book needs better integration with the exhibits & the spy profiles.

    You can also find here meteorites, dinosaur eggs, and plant and animal fossils.

    There is lots to see and it's very intuitively designed as you first walk in. Very easy to see everything systematically. I would recommend going right when they open, as i hear it get crowded since its a free museum. We were there immediately when they opened and in the first hour there were already kids and people more than one would hope. This is also a very popular spot for families with children so if you want to avoid crowds of kids, try to go early.

    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.

    It's a tidy small museum about Emil's art collection and his work history. Downstairs is filled with art and some ornaments I especially liked Ferdinand Von Wright's works. The price is great. 3€ for adults.

    When I was to the Museum Centrum Vapriikki I also visited The Rupriikki exhibition, which shows the importance of information networks in the history of communications through interesting examples. The exhibition also presents Tampere media history. Here is also interesting samples of early mobile phones.
