    The museum overall is nicely setup with signage being mostly in English and Finnish. The museum has a nice collection of aircraft from the start of the Finnish Air Force, to the more recent era.

    It was nice to see a wide array of aircraft in Finnish colors, especially the world's only Brewster Buffalo and a Hawker Hurricane. I think that the overall pricing of the museum is reasonable for what you get, and I love the fact that they have balconies that allow you to overlook most of the aircraft. The one major downside to the museum is the terrible indoor lighting that casts a nasty orange tint on everything inside.

    From Toivola Old Courtyard you can find artisan’s boutiques and workshops, Toivola Restaurant, and craftsmen’s homes.

    The Coppersmith’s House and the Carpenter’s House are the oldest remaining wooden residences in Jyväskylä. They were built in the 1840s.

    These craftsmen's homes have functioned as interesting museums since the mid-1950s. Here you can experience what life has been 180 years ago.

    This museum is situated on the main pedestrian street in the city center of Jyväskylä.

    The museum covers all techniques of the craft. On our visit, there was an exhibition of four famous Finnish textile artists introducing modern tapestries beautifully.

    The exhibition 'Under the Apple Tree' showing miniatures was especially interesting.

    You can also find a center for national costumes and a museum shop.

    Quite versatile and interesting exhibitions. The museum is rather small but still enough to see. Also some fun for kids.
