One of Finland’s largest private car museums is found in the farmyard of Jakola. The car museum, collected and built by one man, Raimo Oikari, for fun of his retirement days houses about forty maintained vehicles in museum car condition. Most of the vehicles in the collection are of Eastern European origin, including a Trabant, but there's also a 1970s Chrysler, a 1950s Mercedes and a 1920s Ford.
Automobile and road museum Mobilia is situated at a beautiful site in Kangasala, by Längelmävesi lake, about 20 kilometres (13 miles) from Tampere. Mobilia experience is much more than just a museum; from permanent as well as annually changing exhibitions to a variety of exciting events – without forgetting the cafe restaurant and museum gift shop that are open for visitors daily. In 2016 a new section was opened: The Rally Museum was opened in June 2016. It is located in Mobilia's main building. The Rally Museum exhibits a wide range of rally cars from different eras.
The Vehoniemi car museum exhibits rare cars and motorcycles, including a ZIS 110, a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost from 1928, a Norton Manx motorcycle and more. In addition to vehicle history, the museum hosts the toy shop Leilan Lelukauppa and a lovely cafe.
Situated on Highway 6, the South Karelian Motor Museum was founded in 1990 and is owned by the Classic Motor Vehicles of South Karelia Association. The permanent exhibition, which is spread over two floors, features motor vehicles from the 1920s to the 1970s. The upstairs exhibition area houses old cars along with motor cycles.
The Espoo Car Museum is the largest, most diversified and oldest vehicle museum in Finland. Objects and special exhibitions are often altered, so also those who revisit beautiful Pakankylä in Espoo may find something new. There are cars and motorcycles from the early 1900s up until family cars of the 1960s and 1970s, which have disappeared from the motoring scene. Our sports car collection is of major interest, too.
