This museum block of workers' homes in Tampere has nine house in their original places. It has placards on each room in each house that tells the stories giving examples of residents who may have lived there before. This gives a good idea of the history of the place. It was interesting to see how the houses and all the furniture and contents of the house developed through the almost one century, from very simple rooms shared by many people to larger rooms with less, more elaborate furniture and even finally an indoor toilet. There is a lot in each room to see. Besides homes, there was a sauna, bakery, general shop and shoemaker's shop. There is also a building with a cafe offering pastries, tea, coffee and soft drink. It has a good number of tables and chairs in areas that give you the feeling of being cozy and/or able to be in separate rooms.

It is a free museum in one of the most beautiful parts of Tampere. The staff is friendly and the facilities are good. The exhibitions are properly maintained and represent the history of the city in an easy way for turistic and general visitors.

This is really well set out museum. As you walk from building to building you gradually take steps through different time periods and you see how, over time, the quality of life improved for the local inhabitants and how jobs changed.

Very nice place to visit with my friends. Looking around the old housing is fascinating itself. But, the snacks and drinks, and warmth of the atmosphere was very enjoyable especially on a cold December day.
THis is well worth it, if your interested in having a loook at life in years gone by, or just to enjoy a lovely hot drink, with a small selection of cakes/pastries.

The museum Café has cosy atmosphere and very tasty and traditional bread and bun to be enjoyd with coffee or tea. You can also buy bakings to take away. Reasonably priced. They also serve traditional Finnish breakfast every morning (also on weekends) and soup lunch (weekdays only).

Small plock of houses, showing how the worker's, the cotton angels and their huspands lived. The small coffee place attached " The Amurin helmi" is a real pearl! Sweet little things to buy :)

Museums that show you how people lived in the past ate always worthwhile and this one is too. Finland was a
Poor country too and this musuem is a collection of houses that workers lived in from 1860s on. Go!
