This is a great place to spend some time in when you are in Tammerfors. the parts with Finlands gaming industry and The hall of fame is real good. the negative is that some parts only have Finish information and not English at all.

Interesting history of the city, including grime Civil War, but also Public Transport vehicles, as trolleybus, which was on duty in the 1950's. Worth to visit.

In Vapriikki you can really experience the history of Tampere! It's a good place for children as well. The exhibitions are interesting and I never get tired of looking at the water next to the museum.

Vapriikki is very good with both permanent and temporary exhibitions. We visited the exhibition about crucades in the middle ages and the experience was very good - a good combination of seeing, listening and feeling.
