Hankasalmi museum village

Hankasalmi Museum Village is known as a lively museum, with concerts, lectures, baking workshops etc. organised all year round in the authentic museum environment.

The museum, an enclosed yard of 12 historic buildings in total, is located right next to the Hankasalmi church and the new Kuuhankavesi School. What was originally the main building of the Vanha-Halla farm, built in the 16th century, is now called Hallan tupa. Standing at the heart of the courtyard, its renovation and restoration work has won acclaim for its evident skill. Under its smoke-blackened wall, the museum village’s smoke cabin has a display of everyday tools used in past times. More evidence of the way of life in those days can be found in the clothing storeroom, the sauna, the barn, the loft storehouse, the drying barn, the windmill, the smithy and its coal house, and the boat house.

A short walk away, you can find the old public granary, that now houses the Artefact Museum. Its permanent exhibition displays a comprehensive view of a peasant’s everyday life and the historical moments they lived through.

The Hankasalmi Museum Village is open from 15 June to 13 August 2023 Tue-Fri 10 am to 4 pm and Sun from noon to 4 pm, or by separate arrangement for visiting groups. Tickets €5, no fee for children under the age of 18. Guided tours are an additional €5 per participant, with guidance outside regular opening hours carrying a €50 fee.
