Spiritual and secular power in Rauma -exhibition

In an exhibition upstairs at Rauma Museum’s Old Town Hall (Kauppakatu 13), the visitor will have an opportunity to explore how the church used to exercise spiritual power and the town secular power in the Rauma area. The exhibition introduces various construction stages of the 245-year-old town hall building and explores town administration that was run from the building during the 1700s and 1800s.

The town hall and the church were the centres of power in Rauma town. The church represented spiritual power and secular power centered on the town hall. The city council and the magistrate’s court assembled at the town hall and were led by the mayor. The town hall was originally situated closer to the Holy Trinity Church where the Rauma town centre was located during the Middle Ages. The town hall has presumably stood in its current location since the 17th century. The Old Town Hall was built in 1776.
