Museum Milavida

Museum Milavida is now open!

The latest museum to open in Tampere displays the history of the von Nottbeck family in its permanent exhibition. The museum also houses fashion or design exhibitions that change twice a year. One ticket grants access to both exhibitions.

The next theme exhibition opens on February 13th, 2016.

The Nottbecks – Cosmopolitans of Tampere

The exhibition presents the glamorous and international lifestyle of the Nottbeck family, the owners of Finlayson cotton mill. The Nottbecks lived in Tampere from the 1830s until the early 20th century when the last members of the family leave the city after years filled with both success and sad losses. The enthralling exhibition combines impressive authentic objects and modern audiovisual technology.

The Suur-Merijoki manor – a Jugend jewel

The Suur-Merijoki manor is the star of an exhibition opening at Museum Milavida, at Näsilinna Palace, on 13 February. It shows visitors the story of the manor and its unique objects: furniture, decorative items, sculptures, architectural plans, and photographs from the collections both of museums in Tampere and elsewhere and of private individuals.
