The castle is now also a home to a museum that and has become one of the most visited by locals and a popular tourist destination among tourists.

Museum has on display an interesting exhibition, including furniture and medieval costumes that depicts Castle’s journey from its early days till today.

  • Hands on experience at a beautifully restored and maintained medieval castle. We happened to visit on a "medieval day" where there were many people dressed for the time period and "playing parts" throughout the castle. These "actors" were super knowledgeable about their "profession" and seemed genuinely invested in and actually aware of the history and background they were conveying. It was amazing. The children's activities were also very well presented and fun for my 5yo. Definitely recommend visiting.

  • Turku Castle provided a Tour Guide who spoke better English than most English people. It was insightful, interesting and fun throughout. We experienced a medieval tournament which was extremely fun, and the food was fantastic. A great day all in all...

  • Thus was probably the best museum, and best castle (self guided) tour I've ever taken. The displays are very nicely done, the castle is wonderfully restored, and you get to walk through almost all of it. Nicely laid out and lots of stairs to keep you guessing on tour journey through the jail, church, chapel, and even a room where you can try on some of the clothes and sit on a thrown from the era.

  • Very cool place that covers most of Finnish history. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable, it's a shame that we didn't have enough time to go through everything the museum had to offer in detail though. Definitely worth visiting.

  • Great experience, good for several hours. Self guide very clearly spoken, all information available in various languages. Experience of many levels: the building itself, the history, clothes, furniture, even the coffee shop were really well executed. Not cheap but well worth it
