  • Another must-see place in Tampere. This museum used to be the place to visit by the Soviet tourists but it also serves as document of Finnish history. The museum has renewed the exhibition in 2016 and it offers also facts and critical views of the Finnish-Soviet history. The place is not large so easy also for a quick visit. Includes nice little museum shop.
  • I was transported to another era. The museum story starts with a short info panel about the museum's roots and continues with Finland's relationship with Russia and Soviet Union. Lots of artefacts from the bygone era are on display showing life from the past century. Special attention is paid to Lenin and his contemporary Stalin as well as other Russian leaders after Stalin until the collapse of the country. Also the museum shop offers some cool stuff, from posters to figurines and even a Lada.
