  • A small museum - actually two rooms, on the 2.5th floor. The audiovisual information is very very rich, and it you have the time, it is an excellent way to cover 100 years of Finnish (-Russian) histor...  more »
  • Interesting visit to the Lenin Museum, I visited it 4 years ago, they have renewed it, but it was much better before, Però is worth visiting to know a little of the time that Lenin was in Tampere and to know some history of the independence of Finland

  • 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 ;-)
