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!
