Upstairs we also have other permanent exhibitions: exhibition about Emil Aaltonen (1869-1949), exhibition about the Aaltonen owned companies, multimedia about the Aaltonen owned Ylikartano mansion and a movie room where you can watch a movie about the life of Emil Aaltonen.


Current temporary exhibition: At The Source Of Technical Creativity –Drawings From Lokomo And Sarvis 16.2.–19.5.2019

The exhibition is focused on product development conducted from the 1920s until the 1980s by the steel workshop Lokomo and the plastic factory Sarvis. Innovative and unconventional designing is essential for successful business. It was the emphasis on design that turned both Lokomo and Sarvis into frontrunners in their fields in Finland and abroad. Their product development is presented through drawings, objects, and photos. In addition, we will display scale models of machines manufactured by Lokomo.


Guided tours are available in Finnish, English, Swedish, German, Italian, French, Spanish and Russian.
