The audiovisual history exhibition is interesting, and the building itself is absolutely worth a visit. There's also a great old-fashioned pharmacy and a shop that kids can play in and learn about history hands on. In the basement you can also find an art workshop...More

The old headquarters of Serlachius mill shows how important these early wood processing plants were to the country. The patron ruled the community, enormous energy was spent on small details and there was no lack of money. The "green gold" built these empires.

There is big difference with old golden time art (Gallen-Kallela and von Wright) and this modern art. This art has to purificate and wash first to get golden time to run again. This chicken court outside was fun. Hope well done next year.

I can recommend Dali's Gala and Brotherus' Playground exhibitions. The Paper Devil I just found boring. The building itself shows what you were able to do "in the good old days", if you had a pile of money.....

What should have been interesting turned out to be disappointing. The audio guide was very confusing. Not enough factual and plain facts. Very dark and noisy environment. Did not learn a lot because the way the story was told was not straight forward.
