  • Lenin Museum was closed for repairs, after which significantly transformed, refreshed Interior Exposition. Don't forget: in Europe-this is the only valid Lenin Museum in which the originals historical documents received from various countries.

  • 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.
