Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum

Turku was devastated by a fire in 1827, and our use of the word ‘devastated’ is not hyperbole — 75% of the city was destroyed in the carnage. Not many buildings survived in any form at all, but the Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum stands proud as one of the lucky few. Now an open-air museum, this is a great place to visit to get a handle on Finnish history and particularly the country’s proud tradition of crafts. The museum consists of nearly 20 buildings in their original form, little time machines to Turku’s past with no small amount of detail and creativity included. An excellent place to pick up a souvenir or three too.
