Lenin Museum in Tampere, Tampere, Finland | Museum

Welcome to The Lenin Museum, Tampere, Finland. The only permanent Lenin Museum in the world is located at the Worker's Hall of Tampere, Finland, inside the hall where Lenin and Stalin met for the first time in 1905. Almost all Lenin Museums’ elsewhere in the world have closed down and the remaining few small Museums in Russia are open only at certain times.

The original function of the Museum was to present the life and ideas of Lenin. The Museum ethos was to remain aloof from the ideological education practised by other Lenin Museum's, as well as from a tendency toward a ‘Lenin cult’. Today, the Museum, among other things, collects, exhibits and researches material related to Lenin's life and activities and the history of the Soviet Union/Russia, particularly where the material relates to connections with Finland and the Finns. After the disintegration of the Soviet Union many documents, creating a more accurate picture of Lenin, have been unearthed from various archives. In the 1990s the old objects and symbol world of old Soviet socialism became Museum goods. At the same time that this unique body of material faces the threat of destruction, the importance of the Lenin Museum as the recorder of an entire era has grown.

In addition to the permanent exhibition, the Museum constantly organises varying exhibitions on different themes. Donations and acquisitions keep increasing the collection of objects, works of art and documents. The Museum is owned by the Finland-Russia Society and its activities are supported by Tampere city and the Ministry of Education.
