Authentic experience
Aug 2020
This block of wooden buildings showcases the working-class lifestyle and history. The museum area is a typical enclosed quarter of the 1880s including 32 apartments, which illustrate the life of local industrial workers from 1880 to 1970.

The museum is open only during the summer. There are a lot of stairs to climb.

Insight into C19 workers lives
Jun 2019 • Couples
This museum is located in a block of workers cottages preserved from the C19. It brings to life how people lived in those times with stories of the inhabitants. There is a gradual progression from the 1830s to the 1970s. The residences are around a central courtyard with the shared laundry/toilet facilities and sauna. The cafe here is very good with traditional foods at fair prices, you can eat indoors or in the courtyard. It is just outside the centre of town with easy street parking. As Tampere was a major industrial city it is vital to preserve memories of the city's history.

An appealing history experience over 140 years ago
May 2018 • Friends
If you want to see how the employers of the fabric factory lived with their families in apartments with 1 or 2 rooms, this is the place to go. There was perhaps 5 children with their parents living in one room, size under 30 m2. Totally appealing!

Unique town history
Sep 2017 • Family
Here you can feel the miserable but pittoresque life of those who came to this town centuries ago, and lived the old style way of living untill just some decades ago.

Vivid picture of how workers used to live.
Aug 2017 • Family
The museum takes you through time from the 1880s to 1970s telling the story of how life for workers in Tampere has changed. The houses have been furnished and each room has a description of who lived there (in English as well as Finnish) creating a very rich picture of the lives they led. There was a party of primary age local children there when we visited so it is obviously suitable for all ages.
