Information for Museum Volunteers

Join Living History – Join the Museum Volunteers

The Museum has several groups of volunteers that form an important part of the activities of the Museum. One can participate in the activities according to personal interest and resources. Are you interested in the activities of one or several goups?

As benefits, museum volunteers are granted free admission to the Museum throughout the year, and they have the option to participate in museum study tours and excursions. Volunteers also receive a 10 % discount on all items sold in the museum shop and a 20% discount on space rentals. Furthermore, volunteers receive an information letter 5-7 times a year.

Become a Re-enactor of the Museum

Are you a history enthusiast? Do you like performing, telling stories, traditional crafts, or singing or playing to a small audience? At the moment, we are recruiting more people to historical re-enactment, to preserve history by acting it out and to strengthen the exhibits of the museum. Re-enactors participate in the events of the Museum and the activities of the villagers of the Ironworks in the summer. Together we will find you a role and character in the history of Fiskars. We will dress you head-to-toe in period clothing drawn from our props collection. For further information, contact our Museum Lecturer.
