From 1910 to 1986, the Kangasala Rest Home was a boarding house, accommodating the most important cultural figures in the whole country. On display in the rooms are items that belonged to the guests as well as Jalmari Finne’s entire published production. The facilities of the rest home can be rented as a festive venue for various events and meetings, and you can book a guided tour of the premises.
The house, which is used as a museum, hosts the sales exhibition of the Kangasalan Kädentaitajat handicraft association during the summer. Textiles made by artisans as well as metal, leather, glass, wood, clay and ceramic items are sold in the summer shop. Works by local artists are also on display.
