  • The absolute destination for those interested in the history of the war. The collection is extensive and includes a few of the really rare. Tampere-Helsinki motarilta a very short puikkaisun away.

  • My partner is very much into tanks so he very much enjoyed himself. Spent quite a few hours here. Plenty to see. Nice cafe for a bite to eat and drink. Also purchased a few items for the gift shop.  more »
  • 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 »

  • Everything is interesting for tank lovers! It would be difficult to find a better range of historic vehicles and guns in the same place and there's an armoured train too! Going in the summer may well be a better idea for your own comfort and some construction work meant that you can't get around all of the exhibits. The bus stops just opposite the entrance and takes you all the way from Hämeenlinna Station. The snow and cold added to my visit, after all it commemorates the Winter War to a great extent.
  • This museum posesses the finest and broadest collection of armoured vehicles I have seen in my life. This is the mecca for every tank enthusiast. The exhibit includes many rare soviet tanks like heavy tanks from the Kliment Voroshilov series.
  • Very friendly staff. Caffeteria is open. Larger exhibition than I expected, both old and some new combat machines. Some things are climbable, so suitable for children. Wide selection of souvenirs purchasable. Renovation works seemed ongoing so it is worth to check again about every couple of years.
  • If you are interested in history, this place comes highly recommended. Old and new tracked armour, various other military vehicles.
  • Half inside half outside, u can see dozens of tanks, their engines, an armoured train and enter and climb a few tanks (some also used nowadays). Most worthy thing to visit near Helsinki. For info the second one is Verla.
