What is MuseoX?

The aim of the MuseoX project is to create a new museum with national responsibility that will record Finnish people’s communications, games, postal activities and digital life as well as display and share experiential content. The museum will encourage people to think about communication between people, how it has changed, and its significance from the perspective of the individual and society. MuseoX will deal extensively with themes related to human interaction and flows of information and goods.

The future museum of communication, games, post and digital life will be located in Vapriikki in 2024. It will be set up by the Postal Museum together with the Finnish Museum of Games and the Rupriikki Media Museum, which are maintained by the Tampere City Historical Museums.

Our purpose

The museum of communication, games, post and digital life will enhance an understanding of the mediatised world and interaction between people as well as its transformation. The museum will promote participation, mutual trust and it will provide tools for critical thinking.

Visio 2030

We will be a trailblazer in storing the cultural heritage of digital communications and a major developer of multiliteracy and conversation culture. The museum will attract people nationally and internationally to its content both on site and through digital channels.

Minkälainen toimija MuseoX on yhteistyökumppanina?

Our diverse mission is reflected in our operational roles. We want to raise questions within the museum sector and in our customers’ minds, provide tools for dialogue and bring different groups and parties together to solve shared challenges.

In our operations, we:

  • enable participation
  • record, display and develop
  • raise questions
  •  support conversation culture in society
