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.

    Great way to see the Tampere from above. You park at the theme park, then walk past the ticket booths into the tower building where you can purchase tickets directly. We went first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds, so had the view mostly by ourselves. Don't need to spend too much time here, but get your pictures then move on to the next item on the list.

    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...

    It was certainly the most outstanding church in the town. Didn't check the inside of it thought. Nice nonetheless.

    We finally made it here on a bitterly cold January day and it was a delight. I will be sixty years old tomorrow and I still have my original Tove Jansson moomin books,so it was a dream come true. Everything was perfect,a small exhibition on the top floor and a huge area below with so many detailed line drawings, various tableaux which were so evocative and so many interactive displays. It was hard not to be overwhelmed but I looked at everything and was thoroughly charmed. Highly recommended.

    A picturesque location by the shores of Lake Näsijärvi and a lovely place to go for a sauna with locals. 2 saunas with varying heat and two lake areas to dip into allow you to cater your sauna experience based on your desire that day.

    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.

    The Finlayson Area is a fantastic area close to water.
    It was build by a Scottsman as a Cotton Mill and to day this big area is full off different life, Museums, dining place, theater, shops and offices and lots of things to do.
    Go there and see the history of Tampere.

    Great exhibition of the various developments in living conditions in the area. The guide was great and it definitely added to the visit.

    One of the best museums in town.

    A lush island with an outdoor theatre, a restaurant, cafes, a playground, small beaches and a nature trail (about 1.3 km / 1 mile). A very nice place to spend a summer day.

    This Is a gorgeous Finnish Orthodox Church. Its interior is splendid and even moreso on a Sunday when church is in session.

    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.

    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.

    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.
