Shopkeeper´s Museum

Kasarmikatu 6, Hamina
  • kauppiaantalomuseo, Hamina

Completed in 1841, the wooden building housing the Shopkeeper's Museum is of high value in terms of its cultural history. The museum presents Finnish-Russian retailing traditions from the early 1900s. The most recent yard buildings date from the 1870s. Various craftsmen once lived and worked in the house and yard. The last family, the Muravyevs, kept a shop in the house. The house was opened as a museum in the late 1970s.

Visitors can see what an old-fashioned Finnish shop looked like at the beginning of the 20th century, when Finland was still an autonomous part of the Russian Empire, and how craftsmen spent their everyday lives in their homes and yards. Some of the yard buildings are open to the public. The museum arranges yearly an Easter and Christmas exhibition in addition to the permanent one.
