Glims has been in the same place for hundreds of years. It has been the home and workplace of thousands of people and domestic animals. More recently, Glims has been a museum for over 60 years. The guided tour will show the history of Glims and of Espoo as a whole.
A shared time for playing old and new yard games in a beautiful rural environment, guided by a tour guide. Wear outdoor clothes appropriate for the weather!
The spring excursion season of the Glims Farmstead Museum lasts from mid-May to Midsummer. During the excursion season, day-care groups and school classes participate in the museum’s programme and explore the area under the guidance of their teacher.
What was done at this time of the year on a self-sufficient farm? How did the various annual celebrations break up the daily toil in the countryside?
This guided tour explores old Christmas traditions, their background and origin. Guided tours are organised while Glims is decorated for Christmas, from the First Advent Sunday to 13 January.
