Move around the museum with care
In Luostarinmäki's old houses the doorways are low and thresholds are high. Please mind your head and tread carefully when entering the dwellings and workshops. Luostarinmäki is located on a stony slope, and the alleys and pathways are uneven and rough.
Disabled parking and a parking spot for bikes can be found next to the gate. Dogs and other pets are not allowed in the museum, but please feel free to use the covered resting spots for dogs, which you can find next to the restrooms. The museum also has left luggage and child care facilities.
