Welcome to Forssa Museum


Forssa Museum is a historical museum that tells the story of the city of Forssa in two different locations. The main building of Forssa Museum is located in the Spinning Mill Area in the heart of the city. The construction work in the area started in 1847. The buildings and the complex represent an English-style industrial architecture with its red brick facades and joining parks and waterways.

Forssa Museum is open around the year 6 days a week.

Off-season hours: Tue-Fri 10-16, Sat 10-14, Sun 12-16
Summer season hours: Tue-Fri 10-16, Sat-Sun 12-16


Our newest exhibition space, The Pattern Centre opened its doors at the end of April 2022.

The Pattern Centre is the home of our museum's collection of printed textiles. The space is divided into an exhibition space, museum shop, archive, and research facilities.

The new exhibition tells the story of Finnish textile printing, an industry that began in Forssa in the 1860s. Forssa maintained its status as a focal place of printmaking know-how and design, through the age of industrial textile printing in Finland, and continued onwards from the 1930s as an important part of Finlayson Co.

Off-season hours: Tue-Fri 10-16 (Sat-Sun upon request)
Summer season hours: Tue-Fri 10-16, Sat-Sun 12-16


Our other location is Ronttismäki Workers House Museum which showcases the living conditions and lifestyle of local industrial workers and craftsmen starting from the 1880s. The museum is located in an area next to the Forssa Church.

Workers House Museum is open during events in the summertime and on request.
