    A small museum on the banks of the aurajoki River near the Cathedral. Many musical instruments and sheet music, manuscripts were exhibited. Giving us cool flower of a sweetbrier bloomed in the garden, but it was a hot day. Sibelius that calm and reach the heavenly music.

    An exciting visit to Finland's most famous composer. Sibelius lived here for most of his life with his family.

    Interesting if you're into music.

    The main hall has some interesting instruments like a combination cello-piano and a harpsichord you can play yourself, plus an interactive display of how harpsichord, clavier and piano mechanisms work. But the best part is the smaller hall with the life of Sibelius, which gave a really good sense of the man's wit and talent. Most importantly, you can listen to a selection of recordings if (like me) you're only familiar with Finlandia. Excellent English translations throughout and a chance to buy a selection of Sibelius on vinyl for just €1. Free concerts Wednesday night, although unfortunately we didn't have time to go.

    Excellent collection of instruments (at least to me, as an amateur). Nice, concise descriptions and background information next to each case. The staff was very friendly, they offered to play Sibelius' music in the background during our visit. Worth paying a visit wild in Turku.

Where to stay in Turku

As Finland's historical capital and one of the centers of Finnish culture, Turku draws plenty of tourists and boasts a wide array of accommodations. Most of Turku's larger hotels and guesthouses sit within the historical old town, roughly between the harbor, the main train station, and the northern bank of the Aura River. Staying within this central district gives you easy access to most of Turku's main sights, putting you within walking distance of the famous cathedral and close to the fortress. Surrounding suburbs and more rural peninsular areas offer cheaper accommodation, but put you a little farther from the action. Budget travelers may want to book a hostel, which often put you in shared rooms but offer a decent location.
