  • Lenin museum is located in 2 and a half floor, and it took me and my friends almost 5 minutes to find the door which was cool. We felt this place must contain a lot of secret for it to be located at 2...  more »

  • The Lenin museum is fun to visit if you don't have anything to do for an hour or so. The place offers some insight in the relations between Finland and the USSR mostly in the time when Lenin wad active. Don't expect to be here for hours though. It is just one floor.
  • This place is said to be the birthplace of the Soviet Union: Lenin and Stalin met here for the first time. The new exhibition is a lot more modern and interactive than the previous one. Still, I think that it feels a bit lacking compared to the original.
  • Before it was a tiny but informative Lenin museum. Now they advertise it as a "new and completely different". In reality the exhibition shrunk, the museum became even smaller, it lost its right to be named as the Lenin museum.
  • Really small but packed full with history! Great place for anyone with an interest for history /politics.
  • Well designed new exhibition, curious artefacts from Soviet reality.
