The weather on your holiday isn’t perfect? Not to worry, because Tampere has more than one exciting indoor activity, for the whole family! We decided to make your holiday easier and gathered together a top 10 list.


1. Särkänniemi Amusement Park

Särkänniemi provides fun for the whole family, for the whole day! In the Aquarium, you can choose your own favourite from over 200 species of fish and aquatic animals that come from seas and lakes all around the world. In addition, you can make acquaintance with the finned creatures of Finnish waters. Also Näsinneula, Finland’s tallest building, is located in Särkänniemi.


2. Museums

There are many museums in Tampere for everyone and for all ages. For example the Moomin Museum is an excellent destination for the whole family to spend the whole day.  You can also spend time at the Finnish Museum of Games in Vapriikki hacking a pinball machine or playing other legendary electromechanical devices. If you are heading towards Sastamala, it is worth visiting the Pukstaavi – Museum of Finnish Book where a fairytale train passes through the landscapes of familiar children’s books. Currently, Pukstaavi’s changing “exhibition” is the Escape from the Museum escape room game, which is suitable for all ages. If you are heading to Sastamala, you must also visit the House of Mr. Clutterbuck. There you can explore the world of a character familiar from Mauri Kunnas’ books in various functional rooms. In addition, you can meet the wonderful sleepwalking Mr. Clutterbuck several times a day.


3. Wall climbing

Room escape games are the most recent hit in group activities. Tampere already has many different companies offering the service – like Room Escape, Mysteeri Tampere and WayOut Tampere.
