Underwhelming experience. I know people reviewed that it was very informative but honestly, it was not worth it. I feel like I wasted 2 hours of my life that I will not get back.

this is a piece of Turku that was left after the big fire of Turku. Amazing place with tiny, old wooden houses and the history of Finland. I suggest. You can even find a post office from there and send postcards.
