What's on?
Museum area Hammarbacken opens again!
1.6.2020 kl.11-17

Dear Visitor! The Fiskars Museum has had temporarily to close its doors to the public because of the global coronavirus crisis (COVID-19). The health and safety of our visitors and our staff are and always will be our greatest priority. In the meantime, we are closely monitoring the impact of the crisis. Certain precautions have been taken with regard to the opening of the Museum on June 1st, 2020, which we would like to inform you about.

Gatherings in the Museum is limited to 10 people or fewer, and we prefer payment by cards at the cashier. Groups are encouraged to be in contact about their arrival in advance by e-mail or telephone. Guided tours and workshops have unfortunately been cancelled for the period 1.6.-31.8. To prevent the transmission of the disease, we have also intensified our cleaning routines. Visitors can clean their hands with alcohol-based hand rub at the entrance to the museum. Please remember to maintain a physical distance of at least 1-2 m between you and other people in the museum. 

In the summer season, you can listen to the stories of the people of the Ironworks, for example, regarding Pikku Pässi, our old steam locomotive, and follow their daily choirs in the museum area. Don’t be surprised to smell freshly baked bread outside the Baker’s Cottage or carded wool or hear villagers gossiping! In the foundry, Kalle and his apprentices take care of their daily routines and manufacture tin soldiers for sale. In the garden you can enjoy a cup of fresh coffee and home baked cinnamon bun when the Café Hammarbacken opens its doors on June 6th. If you are lucky, you can even hear the cheerful widow playing her accordion on the attic of the Slaggbyggnaden (the attic of the Museum Office). She loves to entertain guests with live accordion music!

Welcome to the museum!

The museum goes digital

We are glad to inform you that Fiskars museum has gone digital until we can open the exhibitions on site again. We would like to welcome you to visit our museum by using this presentation. On tarinasoitin.fi we have several guides that you can use from your couch. We recommend the Histroy route to the Upper Ironworks to learn more about the buildnings in the less known part of Fiskars. On Europeana.eu you can read about work related memories from the Ironworks, that were collected during the 70 year anniversary of our museum. There is also plenty to read about Fiskars on our webpage under Research. Here you can for example read more about The Widow and The Bachelor exhibition situated in Slaggbyggnaden attic. At the moment we are working on new digital guides in cooperation with Fiskars Oyj. These guides will be released by summer 2020. If you have any questions don´t hesitate to contact us! We are here for you by email, by phone and in social media.

Fiskars Museum

In 1649, an ironworks was founded by the River Fiskars. Nowadays it is known as the Fiskars Village. It 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. 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!
