Kuorevesi Local Museum
The Kuorevesi Local Museum is beautifully situated on the shore of Lake Kuorevesi. The museum presents the life and artefacts of farm life in the 19th and early 20th century. Come admire the idyllic homestead museum and its treasures from the past.
Visitors to the painstakingly decorated museum will experience what life was like in a Häme farmhouse and a chimneyless cabin. The Kuorevesi Local Museum has an impressively extensive collection of farming culture artefacts from the 19th and early 20th century. There are over 3,300 donated items on display. Many of these even have their own history. The museum shore offers a ‘thousand mark view’, which national artist Eliel Saarinen immortalised on the old thousand-mark bill.
All the buildings open to the public have been decorated and furnished in the style of the period and theme. The upper floor of the main building holds an extensive collection of artefacts, including many articles from wartime and the depression and the ‘Cretan Chamber’ of Field Marshal Mannerheim’s servant. A temporary exhibit is held every summer in the guest chamber next to the smoke cabin.
The museum is managed by the Kuorevesi Society (Kuorevesi-Seura).
Museum is open 24.6. – 2.8.2020 Wednesday-Sunday 12-18.
