Getting There & Away
Several buses each weekday run to Jyväskylä (€18 to €20, 1½ to two hours) via Keuruu and Petäjävesi. There are also regular services to Tampere (€17.30 to €20, 1½ to 1¾ hours). The town appears as Mänttä-Vilppula on timetables.
The Serlachius Museums offer a shuttle bus from Tampere's bus station at 10.50am on days that the museums are open (one way/return €25/15, child half-price, 90 minutes). It returns to Tampere at 5.30pm. Advance bookings (040-166-3480; firstname.lastname@example.org) are essential.
