Gustaf's moving exhibitions introduce Finland’s history as told through the voices of local people. Hear Lyyli the Sorter in the paper mill sing, and see if you too could have what it takes to run a factory. Gustaf feels that museums should be more than a few dusty mammoths in a glass cabinet.

What should have been interesting turned out to be disappointing. The audio guide was very confusing. Not enough factual and plain facts. Very dark and noisy environment. Did not learn a lot because the way the story was told was not straight forward.

The museum is absolutely worth to visit. Only boring thing was that it had the same exhibitions than more than one year ago. Go first to this museum and continue to the next Serlachius museum which is some kilometers away from here. You will get...More

Everything combined, this is an annual visit for us. The new gallery with changing exhibitions is suberb but including the old house with local legends and the surroundings it's a necessary summer refreshment!
