Museum of Southern Ostrobothnia

Trnvntie 23 60200 Seinjoki

A museum area where a total of 18 old peasant buildings built between the 17th and 19th centuries have been moved to from all over the province.

 

The Liinamaa farm and the "Paapantupa," where the seniors of a family lived, together with the surrounding buildings form a typical South Ostrobothnian yard with its cowshed, drying barn, workshop, shed and sauna buildings.

In the vicinity of the yard there is also a windmill, a village store from the 1890s, and "Propeeri," the gunpowder factory laboratory from 1826. In addition, the museum has in its use several of the manor's former outbuildings, such as two pink "Punatulkku" (bullfinch) buildings, which include a museum pharmacy, tailor's, watchmaker's and smith's workshops, knife workshop and exhibition, and apartments.

The manor's old stone-built cowshed includes the exhibition "Mihin me ollahan?" as well as a room for changing exhibitions, museum information desk, museum shop, cafe and a workshop. The Geo exhibition about the geology of the province and a museum about the nature of the area are located in the old dairy building.


History of the Trnv museum area

In 1798, Abraham Falander, a merchant and shipowner from Vaasa, founded the stermyra iron works in the village of Ala-Seinjoki in Seinjoki. The iron works were in use until the 1870s. During the Finnish War, Falander was ennobled with the title Wasastjerna. In 1806, the son of Abraham Wasastjerna, Gustaf Adolf Wasastjerna, moved into the newly finished manor and took over the operations of the iron works. He founded the stermyra gunpowder factory in 1825. The gunpowder magazine of the factory, built in 1827, later became the first chuch of the parish of Seinjoki.

stermyra became the economic centre for the South Ostrobothnia area, and the manor provided an example to the agriculture of the surrounding area. The time of the Wasastjernas in stermyra ended in 1890. Konstantin Trnudd, a court of appeal assessor who bought the area later, gave the place its name Trnv. The area was transferred to the municipality of Seinjoki by request of a will in 1925.
