Craftsmanship Museum – Coppersmith’s House and Carpenter’s House
The Craftsmen’s Houses and Museum Shop Sparvin are closed Mon 9.10. onwards due to a renovation. We will open again in November in time for the Christmas Yard.
The Museum of Central Finland’s Craftsmanship Museum embodies the spirit of the 19th century. The Craftsmanship Museum’s buildings, the Coppersmith’s House and Carpenter’s House, are the oldest buildings still standing in Jyväskylä. They are rare examples of the old construction method used in Jyväskylä, which was itself founded in 1837. Pop in to hear stories about craftsmen’s family life, work, or recreation in days gone by. The Craftsmanship Museum is open all year round and admission is free. In addition, the museum holds free workshops.
At Toivola Old Courtyard, you can also learn more about the oldest residential building still standing on its original plot in Jyväskylä, Sparvin House, and Museum Shop Sparvin, which operates in connection with the building.
