The fortress of Turku Castle has stood at the edge of the river Aura since the 1280’s. During its history it has been a defensive bastion, a majestic court, an administrative center, a prison, a storehouse and a barracks. Nowadays the castle is a must-visit tourist attraction in Finland. The halls and chambers of the castle have witnessed major turning points and dramatic events in history – from the misfortunes of incarcerated prisoners to royal visitors and the elegance of court life. The comprehensive exhibition of Turku Castle presents the castle’s history up to the present day. The elegant rooms of the Bailey are styled with period furniture, costumes and treasures from the museum’s collection. In the Children’s Castle’s Knight’s Hall kids can dress as princesses or knights and step into the world of a medieval court.
