Organisation & contact

The Fiskars Museum was founded by the office clerk Laura Holmström and the midwife Gerda Gers. Photographs and items connected to Fiskars was started in the 1930's, and in 1940 the Fiskars Local Association was founded to keep the work going. The Association opened a museum in the old office building of the machine workshop in 1949. Nowadays the museum's functions are the responsibility of educated employees, but the Local Association still works in the background. Our goal is to tell the history of ironworks' culture and to be a local museum where the visitor can experience the past and get set for the future.

The Pohja local history archive was founded under the Fiskars Local Association in 1991. Among others, an archive advisor Mikael Korhonen, Börje Sjöblom and the then amanuensis of the Fiskars Museum Carola Kämpe helped to get the archive started. Nowadays, a paid archivist takes care of the  archive. It works closely with the museum.
