Wolkoff House Museum

The Wolkoff House was a family home for four generations. It was donated as a museum in 1986, by the heirs of Johannes Wolkoff. In addition to the commercial facilities, the house features seven rooms and a kitchen. The house was opened as a museum in the summer of 1993. The former shop is now a museum gift shop and is the starting point for guided tours of the house.

Information about the museum

Christmas at the Wolkoff House

Christmas is celebrated at the Wolkoff Museum in the style of Johannes Wolkoff's family. The dining room is decorated with a Christmas tree reaching all the way up to the ceiling, as well as baskets of flowers received at Christmas gifts. The amaryllises favoured by Martta Wolkoff are also part of the atmosphere. The family celebrated Christmas Eve in the Finnish way, although the traditions of the Orthodox Church calendar were otherwise strictly adhered to.
