  • The Vapriikin museum is housed in one of Tampere's former mills by the Tammerkoski rapids. It's a huge building and houses a very wide range of exhibitions, some permanent, others temporary. On our vi...  more »

  • Today I write in English. Just a huge Museum where everyone can find something interesting. If you want to see the whole of the Museum to do enough for the whole day.

  • The video game museum is absolutely amazing for anyone with an interest. They have rooms set up from different decades, with a working games console you can play, toys, magazines/books you can read, and interior decorations, all from the era. It's basically like going into a bedroom or living room from the past. Fantastic.
  • One of the best museum centers that I have ever visited. Small and manageable, but has many great small museums and exhibitions. The Finnish Museum of Games is a worthy visit even by itself.
  • Just finished a great tour at the Finnish Museum of Games. This is a must visit for anyone interested in videogames. The thematic rooms are truly inspired and dripping with nostalgia
  • Absolutely excellent. We came for the world class museum of games but also spent ages at the other museums. You'll need the whole day!
  • Excellent place to visit to get a feel for Finland and local Tampere history. The games and media exhibitions were unusual and very well done. The 1918 civil war display was sobering.

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.
