  • The wooden houses have been preserved of the great fire that ravaged the city of Turku. Each House is now home to an artisan who works in front of the public. Very interesting guided tour.

  • It is wonderful place. It is easy to spend at least few hours there and not realise time runs so fast. Mostly wooden, old and cosy houses with real manufacturers working inside is great experience. It is also worth to visit small Caffè located few steps from the main gate.
  • If you got some extra time, this is a fun little time travel to a time no more. Make sure to come while the actors are active.
  • Open air museum in an old Turku neighbourhood, with traditional wooden houses and people showing the art of handicraft. Really worth seeing. The cafe near the main entrance is also great.
  • Very exciting venue! You can get a taste of everyday life in Turku during 1800s and it really is an immersive experience!
  • Kind of boring place. Most of "masters" just stand there.
