The Serlachius Museums  are worth visiting. The Art Museum Gösta exhibits art both in the original manor and in their architecturally impressive and prize winning new pavilion. The Historical Museum Gustaf tells the story of the legend of the Finnish paper industry G.A. Serlachius in an interesting way on a dramatized route of eight scenes.   

Göstas's Pavilion has been designed by Spanish architets Boris Bezan, Mara Partida and Héctor Mendoza. It was opened in 2014. The building has won Spanish International Architecture Prize. It utilizes the traditional Finnish contruction material, wood, in a modern and new way. Indoors you can sense the space around you.

Mark Wallinger  is the main exhibition of the Art Museum Gösta 28.5.-9.10.2016. Mark Wallinger is one of the best known British artists of today.

The stories have the main role in Gustaf Museum. Curious and surprising exhibitions open themselves to the visitors by means of drama and different medias.  The museum is well known and been awarded for its original exhibition implemetations. The dramatized history and interactivity is visible also in the guidances, for 15€ you can buy a guidance which is a live drama in which you are playing an emplyee candidate.

Mänttä Art Festival   has been organised every summer since 1993. This summer the exhibition presents works of 31 Finnish modern artists and 1 artist group. The exhibiton site Pekilo, an old factory will become once again the stage of touching modern art. 

Tampere Theatre Festival   will be  organised 1.-7.8. but the program for 2016 has not been published yet. After arrival to Tampere we recommend to stop At Pyynikki sightseeing tower for coffee. They've got the best donuts in town. What you also can do is to visit one of the three public saunas of the town: a) Rajaportti sauna in Pispala (very original, open from 3pm), b) Rauhaniemi sauna in Lapinniemi (open from 3pm) or c) Kaupinoja sauna by lake Näsijärvi (from 4pm).
