We liked the ancient ruins of Turku that are housed inside the city, we found this to be very interesting. The art is modern, which is not our cup of tea, but we did like the display. It is also open on Monday, when unfortunately most of the other attractions are not in Turku. However, we did have the time to really enjoy this museum.

Nice museam, sometimes really good contemporary art. Old part is nice for kids. Lunch and brunches are good, a bit light maybe for dedicated meat eaters.

Interesting place with the live dig going on in the basement and a good museum upstairs - maybe a bit claustrophobic downstairs and the special effects sounds got kind of annoying after a while but on the whole it was a good place to visit.

a coffee shop with a calm artistic atmosphere - it is in an archeological museum! Enjoy the garden during summer, and a great place for a salad & soup at lunchtime, closed on Mondays though.

This is very interesting museum about the history of Turku. Here you can see the original archeological diggings and get the information for example in English.
