Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum

Only district of wooden houses that survived the fire of 1827 in Turku. Hauses in 18 small blocks are furnished as cardamon's homes and workshops.

Luostarinmäki is the only continuous district of wooden houses that survived the fire of 1827 in Turku. These houses are over 200 years old and still standing in their original building sites.

The museum tells the story of pre-industrial urban craftsmanship. Eighteen small blocks, which are artisans' dwellings and around thirty handicrafts workshops represent over 30 different trades, like a cobbler´s shop, lithographic printing shop, bookbinder´s shop etc. In the summertime craftsmen come to work in the workshops.

The buildings are in their original locations, having survived the disastrous fire of 1827.
