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.
