This was a great few hours taking a look at the preserved history of the area. We got a better appreciation for the workers plight in the area.

This is really well set out museum. As you walk from building to building you gradually take steps through different time periods and you see how, over time, the quality of life improved for the local inhabitants and how jobs changed.

Excellent Finnish breakfast, tasty homebaked bread to take-away. Nice athmosphere for a cup of refreshing moment. The museum is informative and nicely gathered collection of history of working people in Tampere.

Enjoyed traveling through time with the housing museum; where years and lives of factory workers were showcased. One could see the progression of better living over the decades.

Really enjoyed this museum. In original cottages with excellent styling of furnishings for the period represented. Starts in 1882 through to 1973. The 'fictional' but realistic stories of likely occupants for each room, adds to you sense of the era. A total of 13 buildings but each of these has several furnished rooms. Also features a public sauna, bakery, cobblers... More

Very very interesting place to visit if you like history. Is the old neighbourhood of workers. They set the rooms according to different decades so you can see the differences along the years. It´s unique. To complete the tour I would recommend you to have a coffee/tea at the Helmi cafe of amuri next door.

Very nice place to visit with my friends. Looking around the old housing is fascinating itself. But, the snacks and drinks, and warmth of the atmosphere was very enjoyable especially on a cold December day. THis is well worth it, if your interested in having a loook at life in years gone by, or just to enjoy a lovely hot... More
