The Museum is located in one of the oldest wooden houses built for the employees of the City of Helsinki.

Worker Housing Museum and Shop

Alppila, near Linnanmäki Amusement Park, houses the Worker Housing Museum providing a glimpse into the history of everyday life in the one-room apartments, so called stove rooms, of Helsinki. Stove ovens, wash tables and pull-out beds illustrate the life of working families during different phases of the 1900s.

Nine stove rooms have been decorated as homes from different periods. Gramophones, steel spring beds and light bulbs slowly appearing in the apartments describe the changes in the lives of inhabitants across the decades.

The museum shop sells nostalgic products that not only make great gifts, but are also attractive additions to your own home. The selection includes old-fashioned but functional kitchen utensils, home-made mustard, tea cloths decorated with pictures of plants that grow in the yards of traditional workers’ homes, and many other exciting finds. Traditional decorative plants from the yards of Helsinki’s wooden houses blossom in the yard in the summer.
