*'''Tampere Art Museum''' (Hämeenpuisto 20, [http://www.tampere.fi/tamu/english/index.htm]) is best known for its permanent '''Moominvalley''' exhibition ([http://www.tampere.fi/muumi/english/index.htm]), showcasing Tove Jansson's lovable troll family. Admission 4 €, open 9 AM to 5 PM daily (except Mondays outside the summer season).
*'''Särkänniemi amusement park''' ([http://www.sarkanniemi.fi/english/index.php]), which includes a dolphinarium ''<small>(closed until spring 2006 for refurbishment)</small>'' and the landmark '''Näsinneula''' tower, topped by the inevitable revolving restaurant. On a summer day the views of the surrounding forests and lakes are quite nice though.
*'''Pispala''', a ridge between lake Näsijärvi and lake Pyhäjärvi, which housed the majority of industrial labour in late 19th and early 20th century. Pispala area has gentrified radically and is currently one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in Tampere. However, you can still get a glimpse of the history at the area as there are lots of original houses left. Along with neighouring '''Pyynikki''' it forms an important historical area of Tampere. You can enjoy nature at the Pyynikki park and climb up to Pyynikki tower for nice views over the ridge, lakes and the city and enjoy coffee & famous doughnuts afterwards. In the summer you can also stop by at '''Pyynikin kesäteatteri''' by Lake Pyhäjärvi to enjoy open-air theatre and experience the revolving auditorium.
