Riding the radio waves – From crystal radios to podcasts

The exhibition will explore the impact the broadcasts of Tampereen radio have had on public broadcasting in Finland, while also acknowledging individual listeners who have actively commented on the broadcast programming.

The Riding the Radio Waves exhibition will showcase the diverse history of radio, provide nostalgic experiences and make visitors reflect on the role of radio in the modern world.

The exhibition’s objects and audio material, which come from both Vapriikki’s own collections and elsewhere, will trace a story of interaction between radio and its listeners.

Guests can record their own audio in the podcast studio. The exhibition also offers audio guidance in simplified language and audio descriptions for visually impaired visitors.
