Why locals love it

The museum tells vividly how it used to be in the old days. There are over 4,500 items used in Finnish households between the 19th century and the Second World War. The collection has been compiled for the most part by Arvo Ampiala of Lapland for nearly 40 years. After becoming ill, Arvo handed over his collection to Pentik in 1994.

Why you should visit it

The exhibition is a collection of 19th and 20th century pottery collected by Pentti and Sinikka Koivunen for research purposes over three decades. All objects are clay, earthenware and porcelain used in Finland. The collection as a whole is a kind of cross-section of the birth of the Finnish ceramic industry.

Special tip

Some of the artefacts are stamped and signed by the pottery, but there are also unmarked works, identification is challenging for experts even.
