The village of old houses in Turku

In Rauma we have Kirsti house museum from the 1750ies, but in Turku we have a number of such houses in a museum area called Luostarinmäki. This area was untouched by the big fire of Turku in the beginning of 1800ies.

When I put on my sailor’s wives clothes ( to guide you through 1860-1900), I can say that I feel at home in Luostarinmäki handicrafts museum. 😉

I want to talk about life 150 years ago. I talk as if I am from there. How do I feed my family, when my husband is on sea for many years in a row? How do I take care of kids and the household, while having to earn money at the same time?
