Spy Museum, Tampere

3.5
#6 of 18 in Museums in Tampere
Reputed to be Europe's only such site, Spy Museum gives a rare look into espionage, its history, and its importance. The museum's exhibits showcase a wide variety of spy kits and gadgets, including eavesdropping tools, miniature weapons, and optic devices, and teaches you about common methods used to obtain information. As part of the interactive exhibits, you can try out an infra-red device, attempt to pass a lie detector test, and find a secret room with an espionage tunnel in it. The site also features stories of spies like Richard Sorge--the individual who reportedly instigated Hitler's failure. Don't miss taking an "agent test" to find out whether you belong to the CIA, Mossad, the British MI6, or some other national intelligence agency.

  • Lots of cool gizmos and presentations of real life spying! Well worth the 5€ entry fee!
  • Small but really interesting, full of stuff to see, to touch or test. Can make test to be a spy. Awesome fun. Spent three hours and.didnt noticed

Where to stay in Tampere

As Scandinavia's largest inland city, Tampere boasts all sorts of options when it comes to accommodations. Most of the city's modern hotels are clustered in the cosmopolitan area surrounding the main train station, within walking distance of many of the city's popular bars, shops, and restaurants. While they may lack character, the hotels themselves are reasonably priced for a large city. For more a more cost-effective option, opt for a smaller hotel or bed and breakfast in one of the quieter suburbs. To more closely experience Finland's natural wonders, check out the campsites just outside of town, which are significantly cheaper but with fewer amenities.
