Rauma is a small town in Finland, but there are quite many activities if you know where to search for them!
The best in terms of money are the activities organized by the Adult Education Center of Rauma, but these are mostly in Finnish.
Hence I made a list for you.

This is a very Finnish hobby, in addition to ice hockey.
Maybe your Finnish friend can teach you.
There are several places. The hobby is very famous among Finnish girls.
Art courses with Nikolay Nikolov or Kirsi Kuusisto can be taught in English as well
Really cheap handicraft, sewing, ceramics, arts, yoga courses in Finnish, but some of the courses you can manage without speaking too much. Rauma Adult Education Center is the organizer.

The outside skateboarding place is in Pyynpää. Direction Lidl. Near the stadium and the children’s playground and adult open-air gym.
All of the museum of Rauma are listed here (with pictures)
The one and only in Rauma
If you have to buy second-hand sports equipment, check out these flea markets (also online)
The best way to be physically active in Rauma is to bike around places 😉 and bikes you can buy for about 50 euros. Nb! You see many bikes on the streets, but don’t take these. People rush to the bus and leave those wherever they are. Finland is a safe place.
Enjoy your stay in Rauma!
