Review in English below. Olen käynyt jo Vapriikissa useasti, ja museo on aina mielenkiintoinen. Näyttelyitä on paljon ja niiden aiheet vaihtelevat laidasta laitaan - kaikille on jotakin. Vapriikki on sen verran iso, että vierailuun kannattaa varata ainakin pari tuntia. Museon asiakaspalvelu on ollut ok, mutta osa asiakaspalvelijoista (lipunmyynnissä) on hiukan asiakaspalveluinnottomia. Käydessäni museolla 11.8.2015 asiakaspalvelija ei vilkaissutkaan minuun tai ystävääni... More

There are many different small museos over here in one building & something for everybody probably. Went through all of them and it took about 3 hours. There is also lunch restaurant/cafeteria & small museum shop selling stuff related to different museum exhibits.

Nice museum centre. One of bests in Finland. 9 museum from post history to ice hockey, technology and history and natural history. Something interesting for every one. Slightly needs effort to find. Food in restaurant is good. Bonus: great view from the restaurant/ cafe to historical industrial buildings and river.

There was a lunch setting twice during the day and the restaurant was packed quite full. Restaurant milieu of the river is wonderful and brings out a long industrial tradition in Tampere. The buffet meals were many species, but a few food was a little bland. Payment was made in advance and checkout had to wait in line for some... More

Vapriikki museum complex is an excellent historical experience and documentations of very interesting issues. There are a lot of exhibitions for every taste, and we visited in the changing exhibition "The Finnish Pilgrimages of the Middle Ages". It was small but carefully prepared exhibition. And very high in its quality. We also once again checked permanent exhibition, especially touching Tampere... More

In one visit you can visit in natural history museum, post museum, ice-hockey museum and few more... And if you wanna have a break between museum, Vapriikki has nice restaurant. So, prepare... More

Vapriikki museum complex is always worth a visit regardless of ones interests. The building itself and surrounding area are already worth a visit. Wonderful old factory buildings made of brick by the rapid makes a stunning scenery. Very interesting and high quality changing exhibitions and nice bit of Tampere history always available. Not to be missed when you visit Tampere.

The changing exhibitions have been really spectacular during the past couple of years. The Chinese terracotta warriors, Love in the mediterranean world, mummies, etc. The building houses several interesting museums: post museum, ice hockey museum, nature and natural history museum (they are making the exhibition even larger and more interactive this spring), technology, and the history of Tampere, stone museum...

How would you like 7+ museums in the single building with single affordable ticket? Come to Tampere Vapriikki and you have it. They even throw full course food restaurant / cafeteria and museum shop to the equation. Easily spend a day inside this building. I like it, I like it a lot!
