Planning Your Visit

Access and group size

The museum has exhibitions in three different 19th century buildings: the main building, the shed and Slaggbyggnaden. Because of the age of the buildings, rooms are small and there are stairs and thresholds. We have limited groups sizes to a maximum of 25 people so that the guided tours would be as successful as possible. For big groups we recommend splitting the group in half and having the tour in two smaller groups. In this case, the fee for the tour is doubled.

Near the museum at Tohtorin tori (Peltorivi 26), is a parking lot where buses can be parked. If necessary, our guides will come to the parking lot to welcome you. The main building is on a hill about 50 metres from the parking lot.

Reservations and payment

Group visits must always be reserved in advance at the museum's office: info (at) fiskarsmuseum.fi or Museum Educator Susanna Louneva +358 (0)44 5752874. Cancellations must be made at the latest on the preceding day by 4pm. If you do not cancel, a full fee will be charged. For guided tours outside opening hours and on weekends we charge a minimum of €70/group. The invoice fee is €5. Please let us know your invoice adress in advance.
