  • In my experience, this is the best museum in Lahti, especially if you have any interest in the history and development of radio, TV and telecommunications. There are a lot of interactive exhibits that I think children would enjoy as well. A truly educational experience!
  • I was almost lost for half an hour while trying to find the way to the museum. But overall, it seems nice and small. Has a souvenir shop with good products too.
