For Children

Visiting the museum with children

The home of Teresia and Rafael Lönnström has lots of things for visitors of all ages to explore. We also have activities for children. A visit to the Home Museum is a perfect outing for the whole family!

Lönnström Home Museum for Children

  • Admission for children under 18 is free
  • The first floor of the museum is accessible with a pram

Lönnström mouse videos

The museum has a special room upstairs for the Lönnström home mouse, where you can watch the adventures of the mouse throughout the entire home. The friendly mouse introduces the various rooms and tells stories about Teresia, Else and Rafael, who used to live there.

The mouse also has fun activities for children to engage in around the museum. The mouse videos can also be watched on mobile devices while exploring the museum.

The Lönnström mouse videos are available on the home museum’s YouTube channel. The videos are in Finnish only.
