Came here with a couple friends during the free admission hours on Friday. There was a ton to explore and look through. We weren't able to finish all of the exhibits in as much detail as we wanted because we weren't able to stay too long. Only minor aggravation was that for some exhibits or some parts of exhibits information... More

With over 10 different exhibitions and student price of 4€ this is a must see museum. Me and my friend are not much into museums, but this one was definitely worth the time and money. Many exhibitions had some interactive aspects and we weren't bored a little bit.

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.

Very nice neighbourhood and the buildings were beautifully lit. The museums are nice, but the deserted old buildiongs at night are very differently interesting

One of my favorite museums in Finland. Both the permanent and changing exhibitions (this time Ice Age) are very good. The picture hunting was entertaining for the kids, over three hours were spent without them even noticing.

Many exhibitions under the same roof and all accessible with a single ticket. They have some permanent exhibitions (at least the media museum, hockey museum, stone museum, postal service museum, innovation museum, natural history museum, Tampere and Tammerkoski exhibition, and Tampere 1918 exhibition) as well as some changing exhibitions. I found all the exhibitions well put together and interesting, so... More
