This block of wooden buildings showcases the working-class lifestyle and history. The museum area is a typical enclosed quarter of the 1880s including 32 apartments, which illustrate the life of local industrial workers from 1880 to 1970.

The museum is open only during the summer. There are a lot of stairs to climb.

This museum is located in a block of workers cottages preserved from the C19. It brings to life how people lived in those times with stories of the inhabitants. There is a gradual progression from the 1830s to the 1970s. The residences are around a central courtyard with the shared laundry/toilet facilities and sauna. The cafe here is very good with traditional foods at fair prices, you can eat indoors or in the courtyard. It is just outside the centre of town with easy street parking. As Tampere was a major industrial city it is vital to preserve memories of the city's history.

If you want to see how the employers of the fabric factory lived with their families in apartments with 1 or 2 rooms, this is the place to go. There was perhaps 5 children with their parents living in one room, size under 30 m2. Totally appealing!

Here you can feel the miserable but pittoresque life of those who came to this town centuries ago, and lived the old style way of living untill just some decades ago.

This is one of my favourite places in Tampere. It is very interesting to see how people lived in old days and the old way cafe fulfills the experience. Good bread in the cafe. They also have a breakfast available.
