Fiskars Museum

Explore the life of the famous Fiskars ironworks village from 17th century to this day.

In 1649, an ironworks was founded by the River Fiskars. Nowadays it is known as the Fiskars Village. The ironworks used to produce e.g. pig iron, cast products, machine parts and copper and domestic items. Today Fiskars Oyj Abp is a widely known corporation, and the Ironworks a lively cultural environment where design, handicraft and art flourish all year round.

The Fiskars Museum preserves and examines ironworks culture from the 17th century to this day. In the basic exhibition you can turn the time maschine and find interesting items from the Ironworks' history, play a memory game of knives and scissors, try the work of an office clerk or dress as the ironworks owner.

Temporary exhibitions, time travels, workshops and events are arranged yearly. The museum area consists of the the museum buildning, former Mechanical workshop´s office, a bakery and the former ironworkers cantine, Slaggbyggnaden.

The Pohja local history archive holds documents of the fascinating history of the Ironworks and the municipality. You will find us at the Fiskars Upper Ironworks!
