Luostarinmki Handicrafts Museum

Vartiovuorenkatu 2,
20700 Turku

The Luostarinmki museum block is the only complete wooden building area that survived the Great Fire of Turku in 1827. The more than 200 year old buildings stand where they originally did, and the alleys, yards, and homes of the block form an unique environment in the middle of the city.


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.

NB. In accordance with the Finnish Governments decision Luostarinmki is reopened on the 1st June 2020. Cash is not accepted for the time being.
