Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum

The Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum is a unique outdoor museum. The museum is located in the only whole wooden area surviving the Great Fire in 1827. The houses, many of them dating to the 18th century, lie on their original building sites.

Today, Luostarinmäki serves as Turku's handicrafts history museum. Over 30 workshops from different fields of craftsmanship display the City's handicrafts history and craftsmen's dwellings. It will offer you an extraordinary experience in an original pre-industrial environment.

During the summer season, craftsmen are working in the museum's workshops. The highlight of the year are the Handicrafts Days in August. During the event you will see masters and journeymen of different professions gathered at the museum.

The shops, a post office and a cafeteria serve customers during the museum opening times.

The Handicrafts Museum is an internationally renowned tourism attraction. In 1984, the museum was awarded the "Golden Apple" prize by FIJET, the tourism industry writers and reporters association.
