Birckala 1017, the viking age village is great to see, especially "the sword-man" is fascinating detail. Last weekend it was the third time in two years in Vapriikki for us. We'll be back.

A museum with many different exhibitions. Icehockey, dolls, stones, games, vikings, postal history, natural history, history of Tampere... you name it. Interesting and you didn’t have time ti loose interest before you entered the next exhibition. Interactive, also suitable for children. Recommend!

A must go for everyone, especially those who have kids. Especially the game museum with all its electronic devices, history and modern screen games stole our kids' attention. Also very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely worth the money.
