Fiskars Museum is a local museum of living ironworks history. Through guided tours, time travels and events, we wish to give our visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in life at Fiskars Ironworks from the 17th century to present day. You will see many items and hear exciting stories from the history of the Ironworks. In the summertime you can visit the old bakery and bake in the baking oven, sit down and enjoy a good cup of coffee at Café Hammarbacken or play traditional outdoors games like horse shoe throwing.

The main exhibition Life at Fiskars Ironworks presents the everyday life and living conditions of the ironworkers during the 19th and 20th centuries. The summer exhibition installed in the loft of the buildning Slaggbyggnaden shows the life during the second world war and to the 1970’s. The Upper works exhibition presents the Fiskars’s heavy industry in the golden age at the turn of the 20th century.

The museum is owned and maintained by Fiskars Local History Society and run by museum professionals. Pojo local history archives, located in conjunction with the museum, are also administered by the society. The archive collects, categorises and preserves materials with a connection to the local history of Pohja and Western Uusimaa.
