From the Old Library, Culture House it was a short walk to Vapriikki Museum Centre where the “Marilyn – A Women Behind Her Roles” exhibition is held 8.6.-2.12.2018. The main reason for our visit to Tampere. “The exhibition has over 300 of Marilyn’s personal items on display – including famous garments,shoes, makeup, jewellery, photos” We took a guided, almost one hour, tour. It was interesting and enlightening. After the tour we also visited the Mineral Museum where you can find colorful stones and minerals. At the vintage-market I saw many beautiful things. But, I’m glad i didn’t by anything. I already have too much of stuff at home. Before heading back home we went to an Italian Restaurant, Trattoria Tammerin puisto. My pizza was so delicious.

A Day In Tampere (part one)
Such a beautiful fall day to spend with friends in Tampere. Tampere is situated about 170 km north of Helsinki. We went there by bus. We walked to Kulttuuritalo Laikku (Old Library, Culture House) where we enjoyed a cup of coffee before we visited the three different events held there. The exhibition “Fragile” by Hanna Oinonen, the Contemporary Jewellery KORU6 exhibition and an about 30 minute ethno concert. Performers accordion Viivi Maria Saarenkylä. Hilda Länsman, joiku = montone chant sung by lapps.
Visiting Tampere and Vehoniemi
We went on a one day trip to Tampere and Vehoniemi with the camper. A last trip for the season. The weather was so nice.
