Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum - Review
Spend at least half a day exploring the only area in Turku that survived Great Fire in 1827 the greatest fire in Finland and in the whole of Scandinavia. Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum is an open air museum that consists of wooden houses and workshops. These buildings and blocks are still in their original locations and there is a market organized during summers where traders sell their products from the 18th Century wooden shops dressed in medieval costumes! Quite a sight!
The museum has been awarded “Golden Apple” by FIJET and is one of the most visited attractions and manages to pull huge crowds every year!

Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum, Turku Reviews
This is a beautiful old village that has been restored and is well looked after. If you're curious about how people used to live in Finland, this is the place for you! The old wooden buildings showcase craftsmanship through the ages, as well as the lifestyle of Finns hundreds of years ago. You can freely roam through the village and explore galleries and a variety of craftsmen's dwellings. The staff dotted throughout the village are also super helpful in explaining the lifestyle and the functionality of many of the tools and amenities. I loved roaming around and exploring the place, though I do wish they'd have an audio guide.
What an amazing museum! Very fun to explore life in 1800s Finland. The only thing was that some of the museum was locked away. I hope in the years to come, they will be opened. Over a wonderful museum and in the top 3 of my favourite aces in Turku.
Very beautiful walk in the past. I love each house and reconstruction. The explication about how this museum born was a pleasure to listen. I highly suggest to visit it
Handicraft mueseum or live museum, the scandinavians are best this. what a great idea to have historical museum with live people dressed with costumes of back then and doing cores/tasks from the past. very entertaining!
Lovely museum near the center of Turku. You can see very old and typical Finnish houses, some old handcraft. In some of the room, you can find people dressed in costume that can answer your questions or show you how some craft was done. Only weekness of the place, is that, for what I understand, it is completely open only in summer or during weekends. So if you visit in any other periods, some of the places would be closed and there will be only a few actors. Staff was nice and welcoming, the price is around 7€, so it is worth the price.
