Espoo City Museum, Archipelago Museum Pentala

Enjoy the nature and atmosphere of the archipelago at an old fisherman’s estate on Pentala Island in Espoonlahti Bay.

An outstanding new museum! The Pentala Archipelago Museum is located on an old fisherman’s estate on Pentala Island in Espoonlahti Bay. The museum area consists of fifteen different buildings. The oldest one is a fisherman’s cottage built in the early 1790s. The fisherman’s estate was inhabited year-round until 1986.

Espoo’s maritime side is at its best on Pentala Island. The Archipelago Museum showcases the history of the people of the Archipelago. Both the everyday life of the inhabitants and the leisurely summers of the villa guests are portrayed. In the summer, the museum area is full of different activities. If you want to experience Espoo’s unique archipelago nature, simply follow a nature trail to Lake Pentalanjärvi and the Diksand beach.

The Archipelago Museum is open to the public 8.6.-1.9.2019.
