Kuorevesi local arts-and-crafts museum
Museon päärakennusThe Kuorevesi local arts-and-crafts museum is situated in a beautiful place by Kuorevesi lake. The museum is run by Kuorevesi-Seura (Kuorevesi Society) and shows the life and artefacts of a rural household in the 19th and early 20th century.
The museum and the Kuorevesi Society
The Kuorevesi Society was founded in 1955 to raise local awareness of the people of Kuorevesi. The founding meeting was held in the Kuokkala farmers' society house and the idea of starting a museum was there from the beginning.
The farmers' society gave a plot for the museum to rent next to the club house of Kuokkala and the museum was opened with a party in August 1963.
