The Tammerkoski Rapids and the Story of Tampere
The Tammerkoski Rapids exhibition tells the story of how a small village grew into an industrial city
The exhibition presents lives of Tampere residents from different eras via short glimpses and cartoons. A much-loved miniature model of Tampere in 1890 gives the visitors an idea of the town’s development over time.
Interesting historic items related to Tampere are also on display, including a mayor’s uniform from the 1860s, the decorative glass windows of the Palander building, the town’s first set of traffic lights, and Juice Leskinen's Finland guitar.
