  • 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!
  • I thought I should see something in Tampere, and this place was at the top of the suggestions. I followed google maps and could not find the museum at the location. I walked around to ask people, and everyone said it is somewhere nearby. At last, I realized that you had to go inside a closed door building to find the museum with no visible signs outside. It is on the second or 2 and a half floor of the building. It's a small room with few pictures and old memorabilia. The cost to get in is 8 Euros. There is a photo place where you can get a picture with statues of lenin and stalin on a motorbyk. From the details it has a great historical significance. There are few screens which you are supposed to read to get more information. But the amount of information is unprecedented. You need at least a couple of hours to go through the whole literature.
  • The Lenin museum is fun to visit if you don't have anything to do for an hour or so. The place offers some insight in the relations between Finland and the USSR mostly in the time when Lenin was active. Don't expect to be here for hours though. It is just one floor.
  • Lovely little museum, well curated.
