Historical business man's house showcasing lifestyle of that age. Includes very impressive wall papers, painted ceilings and furniture. House is also full of old items.

Staff was very helpful and gave short introduction to house. We got paper guide that described all the details.

Ticket price is affordable and museum is small. This is absolutely worth of short visit if you like history. In the yard there are couple of barns. One is eroded by salt which have made walls like soft pulp. Next to museum is cafe which has nice small yard to sip tea or coffee.

Absolutely worth a visit. Interesting museum which gives you a good idea of life in 17th to 19th centuries in this house of better folks and their servants. A guided tour in finnish and swedish was available. Our tour was great. Many thanks.

The complex has a beautiful garden and 4 different buildings.

There's old building which used to be the storage building for salt. The salt was taken from Spain to supply the domestic needs. Kristiinankaupunki used to be one of the ports for salt trading.

There's one building which we think is currently used for private usage, because there was no marking and the door was closed.

The other 2 buildings are museum and cafe. Didn't manage to go to the cafe because we were just having lunch that day.

The museum building was used to be the main house of the salt trader family. From the interior design, you can see that the family were able to afford the famous hand painted wall paper with different colors, including black & gold, also they were able to afford the red painted building which was coming from Swedish culture to Finland.

The main house has 2 storey. Each floor has several different rooms, including master bedroom, children bedroom, working room, dining room, kitchen, maiden room etc. you can also see some of the accessories from the old days, including jewelry, sewing & kruistik equipment, beautiful rusty scissors, pipes collection, etc.

There was entrance fee, but I honestly forgot the exact price. If I'm not mistaken, for adult the fee was under €10. You can borrow the map of the house and return the map on the way out. We spent around 30-60 minutes with the collection. Not a very time for the boy, but it was good for the boy for the first 20 minutes.
