Our museum’s artefact and photograph collection contains unique material about the history and the present day of Finnish ice hockey. It consists of over 30 000 objects and over 300 000 photographs. Our collection is being accumulated systematically and documented with diligence. It grows mainly through donations. We also have a vast assemblage of ice hockey books and magazines. Large parts of our collections have been digitalized and can be seen by using Tampere museums’ Siiri-website. Siiri only supports Finnish at the moment, but please ask the staff of the museum to provide information regarding the collections.
