Very interesting museum. While there are some hands on exhibits, from our experience, due to the amount of reading, this is a better museum for older kids. Very informational!

Good way to spend an hour or so in Tampere. The exhibition features mainly espionage tools in the 20th century, accompanied by stories of many spies. Wall texts mostly in Finnish, though English guidebook is available. I wish it could be a bit more interactive.

A lot of info is in Finnish, so you get a guide in another language, but the info here is not so easy to find... That should be improved. Otherwise, the museum is interesting, and provides a lot of info, and espionage devices. Also, some...More

Funny place to visit, even if you are local. Nice interactive museum, where its not all just about reading, but also testing and trying out old espionage tricks. Small museum, so it wont take many hours to see the place.

This was one of my absolute favourites in my trip, I love me an interactive museum! Don't forget to grab a guide book in your language at the entrance, it translates most of the signs for your convenience. There's a no-photo policy, but so many...More

Small but very interesting museum about spying & co themes. Definitely worth the visit if one has some spare time in Tampere.

Quite a small museum once you find it, but has some interesting artefacts on display. My only complaint is not all of the display information is in English which is a shame. An interesting experience non the less.

Down in the basement and not easy to find this is a fascinating museum of the history of spying from ancient to modern times. Displays include equipment used by spies and there are places where you can try out your spying skills.

It is tricky to find, depending on which direction you walk from. It is inside a building and downstairs, and the museum itself is also tricky to negotiate. It is difficult to appreciate the contents because it mainly consists of pieces of espionage equipment that...More
