Highly recommended. Cheap to get in, good guidence sharing fun and educating stories about Turku and local life from 1800 (at least) to 1980's. Familys can find several fun activities, such as traditional lace-making.

Houses that were saved from burning in the Great Fire of Turku in 1827 at their original places. The greatest city fire in Finnish and Scandinavian history destroyed most of the Finnish capital of Turku leaving more than 10.000 people homeless. These houses were situated behind a hill that protected them from sparks.

There are many interiors with handicraft demonstrations, In particular, you see how poor people lived in the 19th century. There are no palaces or merchant houses here.

There's a cafe right outside the gate, a souvenir shop in the ticket office, and you can buy paper cone sweets or postcards in shops inside the area.

Note: The street on the museum side does not allow parking of cars. So leave your car a bit farther away. Be prepared to a five minute walk.

It`s a very interesting and authentic place and the only wooden quarter of the city. You will familiarize with the village life of the ancient Finns and enjoy the atmosphere of the place. I would recommend to come here in spring or summer to enjoy slow walking around the area
