Ironworks in Mathildedal (Mathildedahlin ruukkitehtaat) are definitely place to be if you are in vicinity of Salo.

I visit this Muurla coffee and restaurant with my colleagues and customers for lunch. Breads seem to be homemade and chicken basket brings fresh fried chicken fillets with fried potatoes and onions. Customers order stakes, and they seem to be good also.
Of course there are Muurla glass shop near coffee or restaurant.

Namila

Reviewed By Jody027 - Somero, Finland

As a mum of young children living in a country with long winters, I appreciate having somewhere to take them on a rainy or snowy day. I've been to lots of soft-play centres, but I can genuinely recommend this one. It is spacious, clean and a lot of thought has been put into the equipment. There are comfortable sofas for the adults to sit on as well as free use of computers and massage chairs. It is also possible to arrange children's parties here. Although drinks are a little pricey, water is free which is excellent and not always the case. My only suggestion for improvement would be some sort of loyalty card system to reward large families and frequent users. At 9 euros for under twos and 13 euros for over twos the price of an afternoon out soon adds up, but at this place I would say that it's worth it. Great addition to Salo.
