    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

    The view is quite breathtaking at the top. You get a free cup of coffee with your ticket. The lift itself had some lighting and music

    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.

    This block of wooden buildings showcases the working-class lifestyle and history. The museum area is a typical enclosed quarter of the 1880s including 32 apartments, which illustrate the life of local industrial workers from 1880 to 1970.

    The museum is open only during the summer. There are a lot of stairs to climb.

    The Finlayson Area is a fantastic area close to water.
    It was build by a Scottsman as a Cotton Mill and to day this big area is full off different life, Museums, dining place, theater, shops and offices and lots of things to do.
    Go there and see the history of Tampere.

    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.

    Tampere Orthodox Church was completed in 1899. This red-brick church is located near the railway station.

    On our visit, the church was fenced around and there were construction works on the street next to it.

    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.
