Interesting info, and recently renovated museum. Not big, so around 1.5h will be enough to go through it.

it was so hard to find - pedestrians had no idea when asked, which was surprising. The building is really impressive and so is the museum. Small but nice and cozy I'd say. Pop in and take a photo with Lenin ;)

Don’t be fooled by the size of this museum-it’s essentially one large room, and I was there over two hours! There’s a ton of interactive content, and you’ll not only learn about Lenin in Finland, but about how Finland developed as it navigated its relationship...More

This museum you will remember. The town was full of communists just some decades ago and thus the unique museum outside Russia.

The museum is small and offers lots of what I perceived as somewhat piecemeal but highly interesting information about Lenin and his role in the Russian revolution. Worth a visit! Definitely.

A Little different museum. There is a lot of information and little humor. You can be Lenin's driver and take a picture of that. You can find fun souvenirs in the museum store.
