Railway Navvies

Finnish Railway Museum, Hyvink

  • 6.5.2022–28.5.2023

Gravel, wood and iron. Those were the raw materials use by navvies to build the railway network. How was their everyday life in reality?


In the spring of 2022, an exhibition of Finnish railway builders was opened in the Finnish Railway Museum. The Railway Navvies exhibition tells about the relentless hard work of the railway builders and features historical photographs and stories from railway construction sites all over Finland.

The exhibition is based on the dissertation of Kalle Kallio, director of the Finnish Labour Museum Werstas. The dissertation was published by SKS Kirjat in the spring 2022. The exhibition is a joint cooperation with the Finnish Labour Museum Werstas.
