Muvia vaihtelevia näyttelyitä, tällä kertaa Kiinasta! Myös museon ympäristössä on paljon nähtävää. Lyhyt kävelymatka keskustasta. Käyn aina Tampereella käydessäni. Museum in an old factory building. Beautiful surroundings, lots to see inside and outside. A short walk from the city centre.

It is for the whole family. Children can visit the gate museum (adults love it too) while adults see other exhibitions. Have lunch and dinner and buy your souvenirs from the museum shop.
