Game museum was very nice even though quite samalla. Lot’s of little children during the weekend that occupied the machines.

Civil war exhibition was interesting.

We visited Vapriikki in order to see just the Ostia exhibition and check out the ice-hockey museum, but ended up seeing a couple of others too! It's convenient, 'cos with a single (reasonably priced) ticket you get access everywhere. I'm not sure how impressed I was with everything we saw, but at least it' s a nice way to spend an hour or two on a rainy day.

This versatile museum center on the shores of Tammerkoski offers so much to see and experience for everybody. The repertoire includes a dozen exhibitions with themes ranging from history to technology and science.

In addition to the permanent exhibitions, there were several new exhibitions on our visit: Tuesday Dinner – A Food Trip to the Seventies, Finlayson 200 – a factory that became a brand, Ostia - Gateway to Rome, and The Theatre City.

Highlights:
- Beautiful collection of minerals - who knew pieces of polished stones could look so nice? The sizes of some specimen were really huge
- Natural history museum was OK - with some nicely arranged scenes
- Game museum - from the very old games (including very local Finnish-made games) through arcade games and more modern, PC or mobile games - one could play many of them. The arcade room was especially nice. We stayed there until the museum was closing

Free Friday afternoon had drawn an eager audience to the former Tampella cotton factory complex now serving as home for many different museums. The Finlayson exhibition, one of my reasons to visit Tampere, was a bit of a dissappointment as their imaginative prints from 1970's and 80's though popular vintage now were not largely on show. The small stone museum downstairs gives an interesting education about the variety of semiprecious stones largely used in contemporary jewellery. A good selection of Finnish products is available in the museum shop.

Museum Centre Vapriikki (Museokeskus Vapriikki) is a great centre accommodating a bunch of cool museums. It's a great place to visit for kids and adults alike. The Natural History Museum, Postal Museum, Tampere 1918 Exhibition, Mineral Museum, The Finnish Museum of Games, The Hockey Hall of Fame Finland, and many changing exhibitions... 13 eur for adults and 6 eur for kids (7-17). Highly recommended place to visit in Tampere.

Vapriikki is most definitely in our familys Top-3 of Tampere attractions. Been there many times as main collections on display change quite often. They're always displayed real nice, the free guide tours are great as are the electronic guides. Ice age, Ostia Rome and Finnish middle-age were all awesome.

The permanent exhibitions are also mostly great. The game museum, Finnish nature, Finnish civil war and ice hockey museum are awesome. The rock museum is probably interesting to enthusiastics of the field :D

Highly recommended, can easily spend a full day. There's a restaurant on site but only bought a water from there so no idea how the food is but you can easily walk out, eat somewhere else and return to museums.
