You can eat in the restaurant or take the lunch with you and eat later on the way.  Until 14th August Vapriikki has an interesting exhibition called "The Giants of Ice Age" telling about life on earth during the Ice Age. 

Museo Milavida  is an old palace restaured in its original style of the 1890th decade. The exhibition tells about the life of cosmopolitic family Nottbeck. After Milavida you will visit the Tampere Museum of Arts with an exhibition called "The Mumin Valley" presenting the production of Tove Janssaon.

After the museum visits it is time to taste the best donuts in town. Those are served at the Pyynikki sightseeing tower, which again is located close to the beach of Pyynikki. On a sunny day it might be nice to stay at the beach for a while before getting back for the concert. On your way back a stop at the brewery restaurant Plevna for a glass of beer  before the concert.
