Naantali Museum in the Old Town is a combination of several wooden buildings, which together create an interesting look at the history of Naantali. The town was founded when a convent of St. Bridget was established here in 1443.
The main buildings of Naantali Museum are called Humppi and Hiilola.
Humppi houses an archaeological exhibition from the earliest times of Naantali and a miniature model of the St. Bridget’s Convent. Here you can also visit the changing special exhibitions that present Naantali’s history from different angles.
Hiilola property takes visitors to 19th century interiors that show how the merchants of the small small town lived. In the courtyard of Hiilola there is a children’s playground where the little ones of the family can enjoy themselves. Behind the sheltered and lush gardens you will find the Sau-Kallio House, which depicts the artisan living.
The united museum area with its courtyards and gardens creates a charming environment to sense the spirit of the past. The atmosphere is peaceful and charming and in the courtyard an old oak tree guides visitors to the garden, which contains herbs and a copy of an old pavilion that used to stand by the Viluluoto spring.
Naantali Museum is an interesting place to visit and you should book 1 hour for the visit. You can buy your ticket for the whole museum in either Hiilola or Humppi. The Museum Shop Säsonki sells literature and souvenirs.
