Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- Plenty to see with the 15e admission. Game Museum, Ice Hockey Museum and a Rock Museum to mention few, make sure to check out all the available exhibitions before you arrive. We loved the gaming museum as you could play the games and see some real gaming relics, like the good olg Hugo game with phone-controller!
The museum shop is also filled with gaming themed stuff and it is hard to leave without buying anything...Written 19 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- A fascinating look into the Moomin world. This museum is amazing. It’s well laid out, taking you thru the books in chronological order with original artwork and displays.
You are given a guide book when you enter as a supplement, giving you additional background.
This was a wonderful visit and it’s very easy get to Tampere from Helsinki, via a high speed train.Written 30 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The exhibition consisted of a film, war time equipment, photos and clothes. Not big, but not bad. You may take a selfie with Lenin and Stalin.Written 12 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Särkänniemi, this place made me feel all giddy inside.
The rides were intresting and most fun indeed yet a little bit frightful, especially the one I like to call "Uppies machine" haha.
The food in this place is of subpar quality and very very expensive, my wallet was literally screaming haha.
It truly was a fun place, and even now writing this and remembering the good times I used to have I get giddy and a little bit silly yahaha!Written 24 November 2023
- A must go for all interested in stones and minerals! I enjoyed it greatly. Mineral museum takes only a part of the whole Vapriikki museum. It's not huge, but not super small either. The collection has some really nice specimens. Meteorites, fossils, huge fossilized tree trunks, huge amethyst geodes and much more. Many specimens are from Finland.Written 4 June 2023
- It was free to enter. The exhibition consisted of work related historical tools, machines and photos.Written 12 June 2023
- The building seen from above resembles a big male capercaillie in his pride so the library is known in Finnish as Metso. Architect couple Raili and Reima Pietiläs' design from 1986 has assymetrical lines and unexpected nooks both inside and out. The fame of Metso earned them the priviledge to create in 1993 Mäntyniemi in Helsinki, the formal residence of our president.Written 21 July 2020
- There is lots to see and it's very intuitively designed as you first walk in. Very easy to see everything systematically. I would recommend going right when they open, as i hear it get crowded since its a free museum. We were there immediately when they opened and in the first hour there were already kids and people more than one would hope. This is also a very popular spot for families with children so if you want to avoid crowds of kids, try to go early.Written 4 May 2023
- Miladiva museum is a beautiful 19th century palace in the city of Tampere. The museum also houses a fashion or design exhibition that changes every year. This year’s exhibition is called The Bridal Bliss.Written 8 November 2023
- The small museum building near the Metso library is filled with mostly unknown works of local artist Joseph Alanen. He used tempera painting technique with light, shady colours to create mythical pictures of our national epic Kalevala. The chosen style resembles comic book characters with strongly painted outlines and extreme positions. The impressive Lemminkäinen and the Great Serpent was finished in 1920 just before his early death at the age of 34 in the current world epidemic Spanish fever.Written 29 July 2020
- A bit tired and dusty place. Needs some face lift. Some interesting items about Soviet Union and Second World war, for example.Written 5 July 2023
- Visited the museum with friends. Impressive building in nice surrounding. Exhibition was around „still still life“. Interesting and different. Not too many people, which was good, due to limited amount of parking placesWritten 13 August 2020
- When I was to Vapriikki I also visited the Finnish Postal Museum, which tells the story of Finnish postal history and different phenomena around messaging and transporting in different decades. The Finnish Postal Museum has a vast collection of artifacts and photos as well as stamps published in Finland, along with philatelic special exhibitions.Written 19 October 2019
- A beautiful but small art collection of Emil Aaltonen. There was also another exhibition in the second floor.Written 12 June 2023
- This is one of those unassuming places which don't really advertise themselves but if you're a friend of fine arts, it's certainly worth a visit. Open only for a few hours a day. A cool, peaceful haven after a hot day; we almost got the whole place for ourselves.
A well-kept building with an interesting collection, especially highlighting the late 19th century Finnish art, antique furniture and silverware. Fascinating souvenir collection. At the time of our visit the temporary exhibition was about Catherine Val. Every display room has small info on the original owner of the collection (Kustaa Hiekka) and his family history. Don't expect an action-packed experience with all the modern gimmicks, but it's not some forgotten dusty warehouse either. A walk-through takes about an hour.
The staff were friendly. Right inside the main doors we were presented disposable shoe covers(!) to wear during our visit because of the vulnerable original carpets. Didn't bother us. Remember: all photography is prohibited inside!Written 14 July 2018
