Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Amurin työläismuseokorttelissa pääset tutustumaan tamperelaisen työväestön koteihin ja niiden kuvitteellisten asukkaiden elämäntarinoihin lähes sadan vuoden ajalta.

Amurin puutalokortteleiden rakentaminen alkoi 1860-luvulla Tampereen kasvavan työväestön tarpeisiin. Näistä kortteleista on jäljellä enää Amurin työläismuseokortteli, johon kuuluu viisi alkuperäisillä paikoilla olevaa asuinrakennusta sekä neljä piharakennusta.

Asuinrakennuksiin on sisustettu asuntoja, jotka ajoittuvat vuosien 1882 ja 1973 välille. Museoalueelta löytyvät myös yhteissauna, leipomo, suutarinverstas, osuuskauppa

sekä paperi- ja lyhyttavarakauppa

The Amuri Museum of Workers’ Housing and the life stories of fictional residents – the kind of

people who may have lived there – enable you to take part in the lives of Tampere’s workers over the span of nearly a full century.

Construction of the blocks of wooden housing in Amuri for Tampere’s growing working population began in the 1860s. The only remaining one from these blocks is the Amuri Museum of Workers’ Housing which is composed of five residential buildings and four outbuildings, all in their original locations.

The residential buildings contain flats from the period 1882–1973, and the museum area also features a public sauna, bakery, cobbler’s shop, co-operative shop, and stationery and haber-dashery shop.

  • This was an atmospheric and fascinating museum about the history of this suburb of Tampere. The various rooms depict different periods in history and it was interesting to see how things changed as the years passed. The price was fair and good value, and the adjoining cafe was also lovely.
  • Very nicely maintained examples of Finnish homes for factory workers in the city. Take the tour. Cafe attached is nice for trying traditional pastries.
