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.

Really enjoyed this museum. In original cottages with excellent styling of furnishings for the period represented. Starts in 1882 through to 1973. The 'fictional' but realistic stories of likely occupants for each room, adds to you sense of the era. A total of 13 buildings but each of these has several furnished rooms. Also features a public sauna, bakery, cobblers shop and co-operative. Everything in Finnish and English. Plenty of staff in period costume roam the area if you have any questions or seek further information. Is easy self guided and allow around 1.5 hours. Cafe on site. Very well done

This was a great few hours taking a look at the preserved history of the area. We got a better appreciation for the workers plight in the area.

Very very interesting place to visit if you like history. Is the old neighbourhood of workers. They set the rooms according to different decades so you can see the differences along the years.
It´s unique.
To complete the tour I would recommend you to have a coffee/tea at the Helmi cafe of amuri next door.

Houses are well preserved, full of interesting artefacts. Really got a sense of what life would have been like there.
Good tearoom too!
Best of all, FREE admission after 3.00pm on Fridays and we didn't know this until we went to buy our tickets :-)
However, I would pay to visit here

Very interesting museum what the city looked like and how the people lived before. Like so many other towns in Finand, Tampere has almost completely destroyed Amuri neughborhood of typical wood houses in 60's and 70s for concrete blocks. This is what is left and you have a glimpse of living of lower class workers in cities in this fine museum

Incredible museum describing the lives of ordinary people through one century. Through real life stories of their lives, you can appreciate their living conditions, the way they carried out their everyday activities, the kind of objects they used and what happened in the society around them. Very touching and educative at the same time. The cafeteria is a gem, too. Very friendly and informative staff.

The museum is held in what used to be workers house of the last century. Every room of those houses is filled with furnitures and items of a specific period of time of last century which allow to view and pictures the daily life. So we discover the arrival of electricity and running water in those houses. I loved most of all the reproduction of the bakery, i could really easily imagine me at this time in this surrounding.
