The old headquarters of Serlachius mill shows how important these early wood processing plants were to the country. The patron ruled the community, enormous energy was spent on small details and there was no lack of money. The "green gold" built these empires.

The museum is run by the same foundation as the Gösta museum, which is the main attraction of and the main reason to visit the town of Mänttä. Once in town its worth visiting also the Gustaf Museum. It is more interactive than Gösta, telling the history of the building that served as the head office of the forest combine G.A. Serlachius Ltd. But it has also some exciting modern exhibitions. My favourites this summer were the Dali installations, and the Playground showing Elina Brotherus’ newest witty and exciting photographs containing layers of meanings.

this museum is one of two museums in Mantaa by Serlachius and both are worth a visit and a combined ticket for both is only 10 euro which is really good value (I don't think there is a single ticket anyway).
This museum is the previous head office of the company and has a mix of exhibitions about the founding of the company and also some art. I found the building itself wonderful to see with stylish atrium and even air conditioning (for a building built in 1934 in finland this is quite remarkable, even some offices built today don't have such a system). You really get a feel that the company had some money at that time to invest in a nice building and the style reminded me of the Hoover building in west london, also built in the 30's.
The presentation makes good use of modern technology and is not full of glass boxes with exhibits and cardboard labels. The guides are helpful and professional and both museums are really well run. I would visit again.

I can recommend Dali's Gala and Brotherus' Playground exhibitions. The Paper Devil I just found boring. The building itself shows what you were able to do "in the good old days", if you had a pile of money.....

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.
