Nice little museum friendly staff
Jul 2021 • Couples
Easy to find nice little museum. It takes you from the earliest period through to modern times. All exhibits are labeled in English, Finnish and Swedish. I noticed that many artifacts come from the local area and have been loaned to the museum by the Finnish National Museum in Helsinki. There are three levels the ground floor where you enter is the ancient to modern times section. The same floor and upper is dedicated to the Finnish school and education system. The lower floor was dedicated to the artist Helene Schjerfbeck who lived in the Tammisaari area. There was a small cafe in the complex but we did not visit it. The staff were very helpful and more than willing to answer our questions.

Fascinating history & prohibition exhibition
Jan 2020 • Friends
I was taken to the museum by someone who lives nearby and was fascinated by the exhibits and local history (from 500 B.C.E. through to 1950s).
They also had an exhibition on Finland’s prohibition. Given that my home country didn’t have prohibition, the concept was unfamiliar! The effort that was put into securing alcohol was noteworthy. It is well worth visiting.
The whole museum was exceedingly well-curated, with Finnish, Swedish and English descriptions of all exhibits.

I Love This Place

This may sound weird but the energies in the garden is are so peaceful. When I sit there and enjoy a cup of coffee all my problems disappear. The museum is not big but it has everything you need. There is the permanent exhibition with local stuff and then there are different exhibitions throughout the year. The staff is friendly. The café has the best coffee in town and a nice selection of cakes. It also sells merc from the museum.

You buy the tickets at the café as well.

Ekenäs Museum is small but very, very well done

This little museum has a lot going for it, but the highlight is the Helene Scherfbeck exhibit. There is also a well-displayed history section that is fascinating if you have personal history in the area that spans prehistoric to contemporary life.

Idyllic small town museum
May 2018 • Solo
The most important exhibition is the material and paintings from Helena Schjerfbeck who lived in Tammisaari 1925-1941. Worth of the 8 euro entrance fee.

Highlight is the Helene Schjerfbeck exhibitions at the museum hall
Jun 2017 • Friends
Really nice young man sold us the tickets and told the many possibilities of this museum area. For us the most interesting is the Helene Schjerfbeck exhibition and the films telling about her
life was a bonus we didn't know in advance. You can take photos in most areas, but not in this exhibition.

There is also part enlightening the history of Dragsvik from the Uusimaa regiment in 1600’s to being a Russian garrison’s prison camp for ”reds” after the civil war and a forced labour camp to finally being the post-war Uusimaa brigade. In the courtyard are historical interiors: The Merchant’s house, house of Blomberg and the Forngården house museum exhibit different styles and life in Raseborg from 1700’s to 1950’s.

With Finnish Museokortti free entrance, otherwise adults 8 EUR including the whole Ekta museum area. There is a small cafe also combined with the ticket sale and you can leave your bag in locked bag storage.
