Ther was all necessary to see about artillery, signals and military engineering. This is to say from Finnish point of view. The combination of three army branches mixed in the same exhibition is same time a blessing and a curse. Diversion and interconnection versus focusing is not an easy task to handle. To my opinion there was enough "static" things... More

This museum consists mostly old, 2nd world war tanks. The collection is quite good and tanks have preserved well even they are locate outside premises. One may find also never tanks / armored vehicles, but these are minority of the exhibition. There is a small fee while entering to the museum, but I pay it gladly since the money is... More

Worth of a visit. Gives a modern exhibition of the military history of Finland. Rare artillery pieces. Many documentary movies from the battles of the FDF in the WW II. In close vicinity is the medieval Häme Castle.

I am not a military buff (my son really likes this stuff). But this place was laid out and explained really well...and actually made the military stuff intesting. Highlights were the decoding devices and the huge outdoor artillery section

I visited this with my 8 and 10 year old. I found the exhibits and stories excellent and would happily have spent several more hours slowly meandering through. The exhibits all have good English interpretations although the staff do not. For those with kids in tow, be warned there isn't much hands-on stuff to keep them occupied, and that will... More

The museum makes excellent impression. On three floors of the building of the former barracks and on the open area so many exhibits are collected that they give more exhaustively an idea of military history of Finland. Models сос edstvut with real samples of the weapon and military equipment. The description of wars which were waged by Finland deserves attention,... More

A lot of history in one place, a wonderful experience for anyone interested. Three floors + outside comes with mostly Finnish but also other language signs. Value for money as well as you can buy a joint ticket with a few other things.
