Excursion
14.00 Departure to excursions, three options:

1. Modern Technology

The aim of this excursion is to present the transformation from the smoke stack industry to modern high technology with examples from machinery industry and also information and communication industry

Visits to:

Metso Minerals, Lokomo plant

Metso Minerals produces crushers and crusher systems in the Lokomo plant that has a long history. The company was founded in 1915 and it has produced, among other things, locomotives. Production in the area has included versatile items of engineering industry from motor graders to submarines. In the area there are still factory halls built in the early 1900's that were designed by the architect Lambert Petterson.

ROViR – Remote Operation and Virtual Reality Centre

ROViR-Centre (Remote Operation and Virtual Reality) is a new versatile enterprise developing remote handling and virtual technology for industrial applications. ROViR-Centre is hosting the DTP2 (Divertor Test Platform), which is a part of ITER fusion programme.

Technology Centre Hermia and an introduction of Nokia Innovation Centre

Tickets are reserved on a first come, first served basis, the maximum number of participants for this excursion is 100.

2. Industrial Heritage

The aim of this excursion is to introduce a case study of a currently transforming industrial plant, some interesting re-use cases and an unique workers housing area Pispala with shot tower.

Visits to:

Kalmar Industries, Härmälä Plant

Valtion Lentokonetehdas (State Aircraft Factory) was established in Tampere in 1936 and it was an essential production plant especially during the Second World War. Later on the factory became known under the name Valmet, producing locomotives and various products of engineering industry. Since the 1960's, container handling solutions have been the plant's main product line. For instance, successfull straddle carriers have been built for the ports and terminals of the world.

Pispala district

The district of Pispala was founded in the late nineteenth century and the area wasn't actually planned at all - the settlers, mainly factory and construction workers, just built their cottages along the slopes of the ridge in the manner they liked and could afford. This makes Pispala a very colourful and peculiar district with houses built very close to one another. The district is now protected by a building plan so that its look will be preserved for future generations. Pispala is no longer inhabited by workers, it's more famous for its artists, authors and musicians. In the Pispala area there is also a unique and well preserved shot tower from 1908.

On the way we will also pass by and hear presentations on the former Klingendahl weavery and Onkiniemi area, the site of a former sock factory and a former Haarla paper factory

Please note, that a part of the tour in Pispala will be on foot, make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

Tickets are reserved on a first come, first served basis, the maximum number of participants for this excursion is 200.

3. Tour for museum professionals

This tour is designed for museum professionals who are interested in practical issues of museum work.

Tour includes visits to the The Tampere City Museum Collection Centre and National Police Museum. Collection Centre is still under construction but we will have an opportunity to see how huge industrial collections will be collected, stored and managed in the future. National Police Museum, opened in 2008, is the newest museum in Tampere. Accessible and functional building is an interesting example of today's museum architecture.

Tickets are reserved on a first come, first served basis, the maximum number of participants for this excursion is 50.
