My partner is very much into tanks so he very much enjoyed himself. Spent quite a few hours here. Plenty to see. Nice cafe for a bite to eat and drink. Also purchased a few items for the gift shop.

An easy 1 Hour trip from Ylojari (Tampere) as traffic was good. Our boys (10 & 12) were immediately engaged in all the museum had to offer. Every item in the collection had translations in English, Swedish and Russian. There were two vehicles boys could...More

I last visited the museum in 1978. It has moved and it has improved. Well worth making the effort to visit the museum. If you can also visit the near by Artillery Museum then make a day of it. Lots of interesting exhibits which are...More

Museum fee is 7,5 euro. But most outside tanks are not good shape at all. Tanks which are inside are almost side by side, so you can't take decent photos. Also it's weird that museum crew said 3 time that remember that you can't ever...More

As a former officer and a tank lover I was extremely surprised to find such a great collection of rare tanks in Finland. Most of the tanks are pre-war built, so it is extremely to find them in these days. The majority of military vehicles...More
