A museum devoted to the works of Tove Jansson, creator of the Moomins. At first glance, the world of Moomin can be perceived as only for children, but the stories and artwork appeals to all ages.
|Lenin Museum |
Tel.: +358 3 276 81 00
Perhaps the only museum devoted to Lenin left in the world. Lenin met Stalin for the first time in Tampere in 1905. It's not a great site, but just the fact that they devoted a museum for him makes it an interesting visit.
