What a fabulous find!

If you're interested in the history of autos, particularly from the Finnish perspective, this is a great side-trip if you're visiting Tampere and central Finland.

A nice place for adults and kids
Jul 2017
This small car museum offers interesting models from the beginning of the 20th century, all of them in condition to drive. It is located on a beautiful nature spot to see as well. The visit is free of charge. A big cafeteria serves nice refreshments as well as the nice Minnetti ice creams.

Nice View to the Lake Roine, Old Cars and a Cafe
Jul 2017 • Family
Great stop with the kids. Eat some ice-cream, see a T-Ford and climb to the tower. You'll see all the way to Valkeakoski behind the lake Roine.

The Vehoniemi ridge is narrow, and steep on both sides. It was formed some 9 000 years ago, when retracting ice sheet over two kilometers thick dropped gravel on its way.

Recommended to visit during the summer months.

Old cars and beautiful scenery

Vehoniemi ridge offers really beautiful vistas over the lakes around it as well as the car museum. The museum is free of charge and the collection is pretty nice. Have a short break here.

Pleasant cafeteria & car museum

Always a good place to stop for coffee and cake (especially the white chocolate cake!), and to look at the old cars on display.

Something for every sense :-)

If you like or love old cars & motorcycles this is s must place to visit!
You can see great & very rare old & luxurious cars from 20's, 30's etc. Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford, Renault, Peugeot, Volga...and car brands you didn't even know that exist! Even a car that belonged to the 7th President of Finland J.K. Paasikivi (1945-1956).
Some cars the exhibition changes, few stay permanently. Same with motorcycles.
There's also a huge selection of numerous miniature cars you can buy as souvenirs.
Admission is free (Y)

In the cafeteria you can choose from what kind of a cup you want to drink you'd coffee from, taste the famous deep fried donuts or white chocolate cake or other delicacies. All homemade :-P
In summertime there's a wide selection of legendary Minetti gelato (ice creams) and finger food too.

The red, wooden Vehoniemi observation tower is just next to the car museum and from there you get a great views to South, over Lake Roine and to North, where Lake Längelmävesi is. If don't feel like climbing up the stairs the view from the museum is also pretty awesome for it is located up on the top of an esker called Vehoniemenharju. And thus esker is in between these two big lakes.

Vehoniemenharju is a natural park where you find lovely & romantic paths to walk. There's information boards of the history and plenty of natural features of the esker. The forest is very conifer-dominated and the trees grow up very straight and high.

Some 2,5-3km further you can find one of the largest kettle holes in whole Finland called Punamultalukko.

Oh year and also the motorcyclists have their special evening & night cafés Atte museum. So that's one more thing to experience, lots of great bikes to see or go with own (Y)
But this is truly a great place to visit! :-)
