A paradise for those who like armory and the smell of old gunnery. Very interesting, extensive and rare exhibition. So many armoured equipment, that one will forget the time, when exploring the devices, texts and pictures. The museum gives a creditable view of the Finnish...More

Parola Tank Museum is certainly one of a kind when it comes to specialised warfare museums in Scandinavia and Northern Europe. The sheer amount of tanks, including few extremely rare or indeed unique, and other armored vehicles is stunning for such a small place, but...More
