"The oldest surviving stone building in Helsinki" Sederholmin Talo (Hesinki City Museum) Tip by Zirpsis

  Sederholm's house, 1757
by Zirpsis

This is an interesting small museum giving a vivid picture of what life was like in the 18th century Helsinki. It's the house of the merchant Johan Sederholm, built in 1757. At that time, the population of Helsinki was mere 1500 persons and it was customary to keep pigs and chicken. The richest people had a cow, too. To find out more, visit the museum! They also have changing exhibitions of historical items from time to time.
