The Industry Museum
The Industry Museum exhibition offers a great experience for the whole family, and anyone interested in the industrial history of Tampere. At the exhibition, you can use a stereoscope to view pictures of 1860s Tampere, play a game to find out how you would have earned a living in a factory a hundred years ago, take a picture of yourself with factory workers, and build your own factory city with building blocks!
Steam Engine Museum
At the Steam Engine Museum, you can find a majestic Sulzer steam engine. It was used to produce power for the Finlayson cotton mill in the early 20th century. The Sulzer steam engine had an output of 1,650 horsepower and a massive flywheel measuring eight metres in diameter.
