Gårdskulla Agricultural Museum

> Siuntio > The Mechanisation of Agriculture > Post-war Shops

Gårdskulla Agricultural Museum gives a good overview of life on a farm spanning the last hundred years. There is a particular emphasis on the development of mechanised agriculture, with over 100 tractors from 1920s – 1960s on display along with a large number of other farm machinery. An Arbor chainsaw from 1916, an Oliver Grain Master combine harvester from 1937, a six wheeled Valmet tractor and a Fordson tractor with a wood gasifier are amongst some of the most treasured items at Gårdskulla. In total, the collections contain approximately 15 000 items, amongst them household goods and country style antiques. The museum is also home to an inviting countryside shop and a smithy. Living history displays show, for example, how dairy products were made and how clothes washing was done in times gone by.

The museum, founded by Carl-Erik Rehnberg in 1982, has a total display area of around 3 000 m2.
