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

The museum Café has cosy atmosphere and very tasty and traditional bread and bun to be enjoyd with coffee or tea. You can also buy bakings to take away. Reasonably priced. They also serve traditional Finnish breakfast every morning (also on weekends) and soup lunch (weekdays only).

You can jump to the middle of the history and see how people has been living in Tampere . This is a small and cosy museum having lovely coffee place where it's possible to get also breakfast and lunch.

Houses are well preserved, full of interesting artefacts. Really got a sense of what life would have been like there. Good tearoom too! Best of all, FREE admission after 3.00pm on Fridays and we didn't know this until we went to buy our tickets :-) However, I would pay to visit here

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. I visited Tampere for the day from Helsinki on the train and saw this museum as part of the self-guided tour found in the tourisn booklet for... More

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!
