    Really big and spectacular tank museum. There are probably about 100 tanks in the museum, some of which are in the outdoor area. There is also one special tank (T-26 from year 1933) in the museum, the...  more »

    Tank Museum, is an ideal destination, where you can explore our nation's armored forces in the stock in our war.

    Right milenkiintoinen location for all the family and people. Up is a really comprehensive range of historical armor, new equipment and interesting curios. For all who are interested in history, the armed forces and, of course, of the panssareista. And the children's interest will remain comfortably above, when part of the panssareista can be reached in climbing and exploring the right "in the driving seat on the scene". I recommend the warm place to visit if you get lost!

    An amazing museum full of tanks old and new (from World War I to modern Leopards). The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

    Visited here for a function. If you like tanks then this is a good place to go. Even got to ride on one

    Visited the museum on a nice sunny day. The staff was friendly and welcomed me in. The museum has a broad collection of tanks from 1917 Renault to 2005-ish Patria AMV. Good hands on experience, you can go inside some of the tanks as well. Also has tank turrets which have been shot to show the results of different anti-tank weapons. Some WW2 tanks are still in running order, some might need a bit restoring. A good place to see some legendary tanks. Takes a few hours to make it through slowly.

    Very interesting, excellent explanations in English, and quite educational about the context, not just the technicalities about the tanks

    An awesome Tank Museum with a lot of rare tanks (and in some cases, the only example of a rare tank left). A bit barebones and a trip out of Helsinki, but well worth it for any military or history fan, given the amount of tanks on display. All tanks have detailed info cards with various languages including English.
