Museum Milavida

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Museum Milavida is closed until February 26th.

Museum Milavida is a unique museum in Tampere. Its main exhibition sheds light on the life of the Nottbecks, a truly cosmopolitan family who lived in Tampere. The museum also houses a fashion or design exhibition that changes twice a year. One ticket grants access to both exhibitions.

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 left the city after years filled with both success and sad losses. The enthralling exhibition combines impressive authentic objects and modern audiovisual technology.

Christmas of the Palace

The thematic tour will surround you with the Christmas celebrations of 19th century nobility. Learn about their Christmas trees, decorations and festive meals in a luxurious, atmospheric milieu (held in November-December).

This exhibition is closed.
