Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum

Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum (Finnish: Luostarinmäen käsityöläismuseo, Swedish: Hantverksmuseet på Klosterbacken; Cloister Hill Handicrafts Museum) is an open air museum in Turku, Finland. The museum consists of 18 blocks of original 18th century – early 19th century buildings on their original location. The area of the museum was the only old residential area left in 1940, when the museum was opened. The location was the largest area to completely survive the Great Fire of Turku. Contemporary handicraft items are presented. The museum received the Golden Apple international tourism award as the only site in Scandinavia in 1984.
