This is a fantastic museum and well worth visiting. There is no charge and there is no need to prearrnage times, the guides simply start a tour when people turn up.
Our tour was in English and our guide was engaging and knowledgeable. It was...More
We were the only ones on the tour so effectively had a private guide. Fascinating to hear the stories of some of the families who lived in each of the rooms and how some of the events of Finnish history are captured and reflected in...More
This museum is part of the City of Helsinki Museum and is well worth the side trip. It displays, in the one (original) building, about 8 decades of social housing provided by the city - initially to its employees and then more generally. Helsinki is...More

The museum is well and interestingly done...More

This little museum of nine small homes – really nine rooms - tells you how working class families used to live in Helsinki (or in any other Finnish city or town). The homes represent each a decade of the 1900’s from about 1910 to late...More
