A Few Words about Women

The exhibition depicts the lives of middle-class women and Countess Kristina Katarina Stenbock, who lived in Turku Castle, in 17th century Turku. The colourful lives of the women paint a picture of a time when perceptions of how girls should be brought up, what women’s status was, what was considered appropriate behaviour for women, and love and marriage in general were controlled by society and the church.

Built from Ruins – Turku Castle by Erik and Carin Bryggman

The modernistic idioms and design of architect Erik Bryggman and interior architect Carin Bryggman is still clearly visible to the visitor. This exhibition presents the guiding principles of the reconstruction and renovation of the Castle, which was severely damaged in World War II.
