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.

The museum takes you through time from the 1880s to 1970s telling the story of how life for workers in Tampere has changed. The houses have been furnished and each room has a description of who lived there (in English as well as Finnish) creating a very rich picture of the lives they led. There was a party of primary age local children there when we visited so it is obviously suitable for all ages.

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.
