Autenttinen fiilis, authentic feeling in 1900-1970 working class housing. Antaa todella perspektiiviä ennen ja nyt. Hienotunnelmaninen vanhanajan kahvila pikkuleipineen. A nice old times café.

Really enjoyed this museum ,every house part was open which is amazing compared to other open air museums I've visited in Finland. The expositions were very detailed n each room had a story to tell . I was surprised by the whole area n also, I will try the breakfast they make in the café next morning.

We really enjoyed this museum. You are taken into old wooden houses (an area of Tampere that was not burnt in the great fire) where workers lived over the years. The museum has recreated the houses very well, with a 'story' about the fictional characters that lived in the rooms/houses. The houses are very well equipped, and you can see... More

It is a free museum in one of the most beautiful parts of Tampere. The staff is friendly and the facilities are good. The exhibitions are properly maintained and represent the history of the city in an easy way for turistic and general visitors.

Tells the story of how people lived here for decades starting from the 19th century. It consists of real houses as they were. Has a nice cafeteria to visit afterwards.

I think Amuri museum is one of the finest things Tampere has to offer. A well planned and maintained, even rather small, trip back in time. One of the best choices during a visit to Tampere.
