Small but very interesting museum about spying & co themes. Definitely worth the visit if one has some spare time in Tampere.

Quite a small museum once you find it, but has some interesting artefacts on display. My only complaint is not all of the display information is in English which is a shame. An interesting experience non the less.

Down in the basement and not easy to find this is a fascinating museum of the history of spying from ancient to modern times. Displays include equipment used by spies and there are places where you can try out your spying skills.

It is tricky to find, depending on which direction you walk from. It is inside a building and downstairs, and the museum itself is also tricky to negotiate. It is difficult to appreciate the contents because it mainly consists of pieces of espionage equipment that...More

The museum is in the center of Tampere in the old Finlayson factory building, down stairs. You weave your way past a number of restaurants following the "spy museum" signs. 6Euros for children and 8Euros for adults. Our 9-year-old boy wanted to go so one...More

Spy museum is quite small but has some interesting interactive exhibitions. Texts in the museum itself are mostly in Finnish but you get an English (and some other languages as well) binder with translations, so that's nice. Sadly it was a bit confusing finding in...More

The exhibition is quite traditional with items and/or photos on display with text - a lot of text (and yes, it is also in English in a binder, you get at the entrance)! You could probably spend a full day in this museum - which...More

The Spy Museum has many interesting exhibits. I was given a binder with English translations so I could read the exhibit labels. You can read about individual spies and see the gadgets that were used for espionage. This museum is especially good for children.

Small museum nice for a day when the weather is not so good. Saw interesting things from the past and your kids can actually spy on others walking around

The museum could be a bit larger. Some of the things on display were very interesting. There was also some things the kids could try out, which is always a good thing. Very centrally located, downstairs of the Siperia-building in the Finlayson area.
