Luostarinmki Museum Quarter

Vartiovuorenkatu 2,
20700 Turku

Step into the 200-year old courtyard that was spared by the Turku fire. Weave amongst the alleys, yards and homes and soak in the atmosphere.


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 cobblers shop, lithographic printing shop, bookbinders 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.

Mail sent from the Luostarinmki post office is hand-stamped, and the product range of the 19th century general merchant store includes popular candies packed in paper cones, for example. The Museum shop sells books, postcards, and high-quality handicrafts, from traditional wooden curdled milk dishes and fur slippers to beautiful silver jewellery. The museum also includes a cosy cafe.
