Museum of Central Finland

The Museum of Central Finland, also known as KeMu, invites you on a journey of discovery of what it means and has meant to live in Central Finland. In KeMu’s new permanent exhibition you can – among other things – listen to memories and stories, marvel at the changing Central Finland landscape, drop by the movies, read a comic about the founding of the city, and feel the ambience of a smoke sauna, a sporting event or a hip hop show. For children, the museum offers games from a century and more ago, a journey to the town market, a spot of hopscotch, and a chance to create your very own cave painting with modern technology. A boy called Alvar stands ready to guide you to Jyväskylä as it existed more than a century ago.

In the museum’s first and fourth floors, you can peruse two temporary exhibitions. Read more about the temporary exhibitions here:

In the second floor of the museum you’ll find our Rumpus room, Nappula, with many independent activities for the whole family to spice up your museum visit.
