I've been here on January with my school and this museum has been for us so interesting and amazing. There are a lot of pictures and objects from the Finnish story and from the story of Tampere and you can also use some of them (like an old bicycle). If you are in Tampere you really have to visit this... More

For me Vapriikki was place where I haven't been before. So I wanted to visit there definitely. Expositions were interesting, I enjoyed a lot. Perhaps it's more interesting for the Finns, but I recommed it to everybody.

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.

This place is fantastic. It had so many things for a 12 year old to do. You can learn how to operate a log loader in an actual seat from one of the machines in a simulation. You can have a shoot out against a hockey goalie. There is a shoe museum that was amazing, a display of all the... More

The exhibitions of Tampere history are really interesting, but even better is this year's exhibition - Aphrodite's Empire. 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

Quite nice the visit. It is basically a lot of museums all stuck together but very well maintained. They have many all-season exhibits and one movable.
