This was a nice museum to visit with kids. Several displays don't let the kids get bored, and the reception gave them assignments to find certain things from the museum. We also had lunch at the restaurant, which was ok for the price.

The exhibition was interesting to me but I can only imagine how exciting it was for the young ones. They kept wondering who was the first person and where did he come from? There are so many interesting museums in Vapriikki.... More

My favorite was always the Postal Museum, which has a nice atmosphere. The new information age museum, Rupriikki, was also very interesting. I think there's... More
