At Lenin Museum, one of the rare permanent museums dedicated to this Russian politician and revolutionary, you'll see exhibits about his work, his life, and the USSR. The museum focuses on critically formed archives and personal effects, such as school reports and Lenin's couch. Two compact exhibit rooms feature manuscripts and photographs providing a glimpse into Finland and Russia of the 20th century. After a self-guided tour, check out the shop that offers various souvenirs, ranging from postcards to Lenin busts. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Tampere trip simple and quick.

Very interesting stories and artifacts, but also very nice personnel. They even agreed on taking many photos of me by their Lenin statue. I can recommend visiting this museum and finding out for example that Lenin and Stalin met for the first time in Tampere, Finland.
This is so specific museum and you have to know something about Finnish and Russian history especially about dark period in 1917-1939 before visiting just for better understanding. Search a place for free car parking near at the nearest streets ;-)
