Interesting museum. The exhibition makes you understand the importance and advance of metal industry in Finland.

Great experience was to see the old restored iron melting facility. Located just next to the museum.

There are a hotel and cafe on site, too. However, due the pandemic the cafe was closed.

Quaint museum next to the hotel and terrace restaurant
Jun 2020
We visited this small museum after it had just re-opened after corona restrictions. The museum is small an quaint and it complemented really well our visit to the near-by terrace restaurant (at the hotel "Karkkilan Tehtaan Hotelli"). The museum is next to an old blast furnace - this we were not able to visit, but apparently this will be possible in July. We're thinking we will re-visit later, as we will surely re-visit the terrace restaurant "Tammen Alla" (i.e. "Under the Oak") during the summer. The museum was on two floors and there was local and Finnish industrial history from 19th century to present times (in fact ... some of the pictures from 70s and 80s were really nice).

The museum as well as the restaurant and the hotel are in the area which served as accommodation for the tycoons and mill leadership of the old times, from the time when the old blast furnace was still operational. It's a really good idea to visit the museum on a sunny day, and spend time at the hotel surroundings and at the wonderful terrace restaurant. Alone the museum is ok, but combined with the overall setting, the experience was really good.
