Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- Old Rauma a unic town in Finland. Small street, wooden houses, lot of cafe and design sops. Interesting small museums to experuence old style living in Rauma.
In Rauma was during our visit the Rauma Festivo musik week, which was on the highest international artistic levelWritten 7 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Nice church but was closed on Saturday evening. Opening times are limited so most likely you will not get in. From outdoors looks also nice.Written 13 September 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The museum honours the seafaring history of Rauma. The displays are interesting and genuine, and the highlight is taking a ship into Rauma port on a simulator.Written 26 July 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The Marela shipowner´s house is a well restored document of a wealthy family´s home a couple of hundred years ago - although the original interior pieces have disappeared. The interiors document the life and circumstances and the original ceiling, door arch and other structures show early crfatmanship.Written 26 July 2020
- I visited the tower with my husband. On Friday afternoon there was no-one else. :) Nice bar and restaurant worth visiting.Written 10 June 2022
- One of the most thrilling adventures in my life! The boat that we had to go to the island was small and the sea sort of choppy. We on the deck got drenched within a few minutes before we could go inside. But it was once in lifetime kind of experience. We went for a coffee in the restaurant and the view from the 8th floor was one of the most amazing sights in my life . It was as always they said like that and you fear to be blown away, and not easy to take pictures. But it's all worth it!! Strongly recommended to one and all!Written 21 June 2019
- Nice little museum where you can get a glimpse of how life was in the old times. The museum is quite small so you don’t need to reserve much time.Written 21 July 2020
- We were driving through this area and we really like these kinds of sites and even more so when they are UNESCO designated. As with other reviews a guide would have been nice. But it was still a really nice walk through a beautiful forest and these burial sites are very interesting. Would not make a special trip to go there but if you are driving the Finland coast road it is well worth a 2 hour stop and walk through the forest to see them.Written 2 June 2022
- The Old Town Hall was built in 1776 for the seat of the town council. Since 1902 it has been a museum.
It is a two-storied baroque style building next to the market square. In the middle is a clock tower.
The exhibition on the ground floor shows the history of lacemaking in Rauma.
The upper level displays objects related to the town history.
On our visit, there was an art exhibition in the yard.Written 25 August 2019
- This is a small but compact museum bringing the history and traditional skills of Rauma to the visitors like the laces, equipment for sailing, traditional outfits, furniture in wood and so on. The museum shop is rather expensive.Written 13 May 2019
- The museum itself is quite cozy and allows warm interaction with the art. The current exhibition about the destinies of the Carelian people running from their homes in WW2 is really beautuful and touching.Written 26 July 2020
- Ruins or kivikasa as we say in Finland. Nothing special to see, thombs but plates are rusty so hard to read. Anyway it is free and next to old Town so take a walk..Written 13 September 2020
- Lake Äyhönjärvi is situated less than two kilometers from Old Rauma and it is a very nice scenic walking area. There is a walking route around the lake. If you walk this circle trail it is about three kilometers. Take your own picnic lunch with you. You can also take some bread for wild ducks (mallards).Written 11 July 2017
- This is a bit of a surprise, it is an eclectic range of items in what is a middle class domestic house. The actual items are interesting but many are difficult to see, often they can only be viewed from the side. Because this is a domestic setting it is as though the occupants have reluctantly given over their home for a few weeks and intend to reclaim their space very soon. All in all this is a 'sad' setting for what is a fine setting in 'quirky' designed house.
Basically I want to know more, what is the design of house it terms of the period, who are the artist's whose paintings are displayed on the walls, give me more and please redesign the layout so that these items can be seen properly.Written 2 September 2015
- This chapel is situated in the middle of Rauma's historic cemetery. It was designed by the famous Finnish architect, Lars Sonck, who also designed the Tampere Cathedral and other Finnish landmarks.
This one is done in his trademark National Romantic style with beautiful stone-carving and a shape like a traditional house. Alfred Kordelin was a noteworthy Rauma dignitary and this burial chapel is small but lovely.Written 18 June 2017
