  • I've been living in Tampere for a good while, but it's only when my parents come to visit that I look the city as a tourist. I've been to both the old and the new Lenin museums, and while I personally...  more »
  • The Museum attracts travelers with its name. I do not know whether such museums are preserved even in other places. The Museum was founded in the building where the leaders met for the first time the Russian proletariat-Lenin and Stalin. And it happened in 1904, the year when the situation in Russia (the ban on holding of congresses and meetings) forced the RSDPr to hold its Congress in Finland. Thus retained the seat, but did not retain the exhibits. Except for a few photos, of no interest. In a close premise exhibited things times late in the USSR; not trjohkoljosnom motorcycle are poorly made mock-ups of Lenin and Stalin; tableware and household items do not have any relationship to the name of the Museum. They say that this Museum had a special atmosphere in the 80 's-90 's of the last century. It's possible! Now it is plain kitsch. I do not recommend to visit!

  • Museums can be ranked on the goldilocks' scale. Some are almost too big (like the Hermitage in St Petersburg), some are too small and some are just right. The Lenin Museum in Tampere is in a class of ...  more »

  • Museum sucks. It is not a museum, it is one tiny room in a building which has nothing to do with Lenin. There are texts for reading on the walls and that's it. There aren't even many objects from that aera. Totally not worth money and time. Shame on the scummers who run it and call it a museum and shamelessly take so much money for admission.
  • Small but interesting presentation in historic building.
  • Slightly underdone. It has pretty tenuous links to Lenin. Not a lot about the significant crimes of Lenin and Stalin. Felt oddly one sided.
  • Kiinnostava ja neuvostohenkinen paikka
  • With the advent of the Russian Revolution and Finland Tampere poloisen independence. The history of the Councils in the Soviet Union and the independence of Finland.
