Went with our 3,5 years old grandchild, and he had a great time. There are exhibits for every age, and level of interest. We paid Extra to visit the Mini Expo, which has some possible activities for kids, but I am not sure it was worth it. On the other hand, the Mini for the smallest kids, which is free was a huge hit. There's a big slide, there are books, a real firetruck with all its equipment, a booth with sounds and textures, a wall to experiment with touch, and several other interesting interactive stations. Highly recommended for this age range. We spent there a long time. Then, we finished our visit at the museum's restaurant, and I was very impressed with the quality of the food. We tried several vegetarian specialties, and they were all excellent.

The only downside for me was that I could spend only two hours in the museum and I think that two days would have been a better time allocation. That said it was still possible to enjoy the short time I stayed there. The exhibition nicely covered different fields of technology, ages and all was well setup, nothing broken or under construction. After a short while I stopped taking pictures but attached are a few. Surprised to learn that Austria had found use of naval ships I earlier times!

What a wonderful museum this is!!! So much to see and do. Well designed play areas for children are a welcome addition. Amazing exhibitions on the history and evolution of transport, communication, food, technology, science, toys... Just a fantastic opportunity to explore, learn, and enjoy.

Absolutely one of the best museums I've ever been to! Very well laid out, and lots to see and experience. The restaurant is a good place to go to catch your breath before continuing your visit.

Great place to learn about the history of technology. There is also a huge variety of experiments which captivate kids and adults alike. You can easily spend half a day here, maybe even a full one if you visit everything.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
