Great exhibition of the various developments in living conditions in the area. The guide was great and it definitely added to the visit.

One of the best museums in town.

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.

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.

We had a great time seeing the type of housing of the early settlers in Finland! Truly remarkable that this museum exists! Memorable!!!

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!
