Lonely Planet review

Rauma Museum is divided over four sites. On the southern side of the kauppatori is Rauma’s most impressive building, Vanha Raatihuone built in 1776. It now houses the summer tourist office and exhibits a few choice lace pieces and changing local history displays.

Down the road, Marela is the preserved home of a wealthy 19th-century merchant family, furnished with antiques, wall paintings and Swedish ceramic stoves.

Towards the other end of the social scale, Kirsti is a lovable collection of lopsided wooden buildings, circling a little yard by the river. Inside, rooms represent different periods of the home’s life right through to the 1970s.

Located outside the Old Town due to the fire risk, Savenvalajan Verstas is a tiny museum that once made distinctive stove tiles. It provides an insight into this fascinating trade, and you can have a go yourself.
