The Nottbecks – Cosmopolitans of Tampere

The permanent 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 Glorious Glasses

The Glorious Glasses exhibition focuses on the most spectacular of accessories – the spectacles. It’s plain to see that glasses are not just lenses placed in front of the eyes to aid vision; they are also very much about fashion.
