The Craft Museum of Finland
The Imperial Senate ordered on 14th December 1888, that an allowance be granted for the operation of a handicraft museum beginning in 1890.The resulting museum operated under the Society of Industrial Art and was located at the Museum of Art and Design (operating today as the Design Museum).
The Craft Museum of Finland is a specialized museum for handicraft covering entire Finland. The museum covers all techniques of handicraft, from house building to lace making and from forging to the design of ornaments. The National Costume Center of Finland and The Conservation Center are part of the museum.
As a specialized museum, the maintenance comes from the City of Jyväskylä but also from the Ministry of Education and Culture because of museum’s national status.
Jyväskylä is especially known for its rich variety of culture; museums, art exhibitions, concerts, events and theatre performances.
