  • Worth experiencing a small piece of the history of the Soviet Union. For sale all kinds of NL and kekkostavaraa. Maatuskat would have been a fun souvenir, but the price was too expensive.

  • Interesting info, and recently renovated museum. Not big, so around 1.5h will be enough to go through it.  more »

  • This museum was definitely the highlight of my visit to Finland. We went on a day trip to Tampere from Helsinki just to experience this and we were not disappointed. We were offered a thorough introduction to the relationship between the ussr and Finland through historical objects and documents. The gift shop was very cool as well, definitely recommend stopping by if you’re in the area.
  • The Lenin museum was a hit with our party! We happened to show up just as the Finnish guide was starting his tour. The guide was very informative and thorough, we enjoyed his account on the museum and history very much. The museum is small but very nicely put up and filled with memorabilia of the Soviet Union. One of my top picks for Tampere!
