What is Worker Housing Museum?
The nine small stove rooms of the Worker Housing Museum provide a glimpse into the history of everyday life in Helsinki. Stove ovens, wash tables and pull-out beds illustrate the life of working families during different phases of the 1900s. The museum is located in a wooden house built in 1909 with traditionaldecorative plants from the yards of Helsinki’s wooden houses blossoming in the attractive yard in the summer. Entrance to the Worker Housing Museum is always free of charge.
