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.

Dreams of Milavida

Photography artist Marja Pirilä has a unique relationship with Milavida. She spent many long hours in the empty palace in 2011–12, using an ancient approach that could be called slow photography, the camera obscura technique, to photograph the deserted rooms.
