It is only a 5-10 minute walk down from Pynikki Tower to the Amuri museums but again no signposts so more map reading and asking people. Even when I was close I had to ask the location of the worker's housing museum as it is behind another museum. I found the museum fascinating. I was provided with a booklet with... More

Well worth a visit. A mueum of how things were pretty much pre-war II from an Industrial workers' perspective. Ask at kiosk for your laungage book/guide. Quite daunting to see how families lived.

A very interesting museum of houses (all original to the location) of how citizens of Tampere lived in the last 100 or so years. View the latest technologies and see how politics influenced the "decorations" of the house. Don't forget to visit the communal sauna and bathroom!

The museum details the history very well and we enjoyed the old industrial machines used in the manufacturing process.

This museum is simply moving. It tells the history of housing for workers in Tampere, beginning in the 1880s. There is no temptation to romanticize the past - life must have been hard and privacy limited. As you move through the decades (the museum is organised in chronological order and follows select life-storeis), the furniture, fittings and fabric change bit... More

Best way to start uderstand how we lived in Finland earlier. Central kitchen, saunas and closed yards. Ladies of the house were commanding officers and men drunk.
