Klaavola Museum brings alive the area’s rich rural past. The museum tells the story of the local farming family. Visitors can take a nostalgic trip back in time in Klaavola's two hundred year old main building. Rooms are decorated in the style of 1920’s to 1940’s and the outside buildings have collection of farming memorabilia. The farm yard buildings include barns, milking parlor, sleigh shed and sauna.
Klaavola was one of the oldest and wealthiest farms in the area and it was mentioned in the local records already in the early 1700’s, although the current farm building is possibly from the turn of the 18th century. Klaavola was a working farm until the 1970’s and this once ancestral home of the Collin family turned into a museum in the 1980’s.
Klaavola Museum is normally open by appointment only (tel. + 358 40 314 3468, +358 9 8718 3465); however, the museum is open for public on some pre-arranged dates throughout the year.
