I have been here twice, once with my Finnish language language class and once with friends. I particularly like the nature exhibits (you can see how how large a moose is!) and the very complete exhibit of the 1918 conflict is very emotional, even if you do not speak any Finnish. The Aphrodite special exhibit was very interesting with artifacts... More

Easy access on foot from downtown Tampere the spacious rooms are a delight for the visitor. Everyone should find something of interest as displays are so varied from fashion to technology.

The mood and items they have make you feel like you were in the ancient Greece and Egypt. Also in the third floor are exhibitions on Finnish ice hockey and toys. You should visit you have extra time in Tampere, it's very... More

Brilliant place even for a foreign visitor from England! Very informative and we were lucky enough to see the terracotta warriors exhibition - a must see if you visit Tampere.

It offers a lot to do and see for people in all ages, but especially children could enjoy this. In the hockey museum you are able to try and play yourself, the toy museum gives... More

I´ve been here to some special events before (for instance Sitting Bull- exhibition) and now came to see the Terracotta Army. A good exhibition, but also the permanent shows are good.
