Luostarinmäki is a whole museum village dating from the 1700s and 1800s.
In 1827 the Great Fire of Turku caused enormous destruction, but Luostarinmäki was spared. Today, it provides the unique setting as a window in time to see the craftsmen of the pre-industrial era. At the museum, time-travel to the 1800s and observe the life of common people.
The museum presents professions of the pre-industrial era. During summer the craftsmen busy themselves in the museum. The summer culminates in August with the Handicraft Days festivities, where artisans showcase the crafts of a bygone era.
At the Museum Shop Hantvärki you can buy handicraft products, publications, greeting cards, cone-packet sweets and rooster whistles. Café Kisälli, located in a nearby house from 1851, serves the museum.
