Based in the spacious former engineering works of Tampella, a 20th-century heavy industry manufacturer, Vapriikki is several museums rolled into one. Everyone should find something to catch their attention, whether it’s the Media Museum, Natural History Museum, the Mineral Museum, Postal Museum or…
Cool museum with something for everybody. Especially Finnish Gaming Museum (Suomen Pelimuseo) in Vapriikki is our daughters favourite.
Vapriikki has always high quality exhibitions to be visited. Game museum (in Vapriikki) alone is worth the trip as they have done an amazing job in keeping the old gaming machines in working condition and available to play.
“Kauppahalli is over 100 years old indoor market where local producers sell their products. There is large selection of different shops, cafes and restaurants but most importantly the unique atmosphere is worth checking out. It feels like you have stepped back in time, in a good way, once you enter in the hall. My favorite restaurant Neljä Vuodenaikaa is at the end of the hall.”
“This church is very special because of its history, paintings and architecture. ”
