A pleasant surprise
Jun 2020 • Couples
I didn't have high expectations when gpinh to visit the "museum" but it turned out to be a very interesting and entertaining visit. There were three different guides during our tour and they all did a stellar job. One of them was likely the owner and he spiced up the tour with quite a lot of showmanship. The actual instruments are the likes you won't be seeing in many places and the favt they actually work still today is great. Give this place a visit if you are near Varkaus.

Interesting and entertaining

The guided tour took about an hour. The three guides presented different areas of the museum spoke in Finnish and English. We found the 2 younger guides to be the most entertaining.
An amazing collection in a grand old building (under partial renovation) which shows off the exhibits well.

Rich and eventful museum experience!
Jul 2019
I was stunned by the experience of getting to listen several mechanical instruments. I thought that visiting a museum might be dull, but this museum was totally something else! I have never been in a museum that provides so many experiences in a short period. All the three guides were excellent and the atmosphere of the building was unique.

You wouldn't expect a museum be this funny. See and listen to weird old mechanical instruments and very funny stories guides tell you. The tour takes about an hour.

A museum not to be missed
Jun 2019 • Couples
Peculiar and funny instruments presented by great guides. Though you might have seen something similar elsewhere this shall not be missed. And as a bonus there are some funny interpretation of well-known paintings.

Do not visit!!
Jul 2018 • Couples
The first tour guide was excellent, but the second one went as far as insulting us straight to our faces. I guess that’s what you get when you’re a Russian living in America - it was like a double trigger for his racist persona. This place is not suitable for children, LGBT, women in general or anyone who isn’t Finnish/German. Would recommend to stay away unless you enjoy having verbal diarrhea being poured on you and your loved ones.

Absolutely a must go! The instruments presented here are among the most peculiar you will ever see and the guided tour is very interesting. And then you have the owner, who's worth the visit by himself. Talk to him for a while and you will understand why.
