Glims Farmstead Museum

Living history all year round!

Glims Farmstead Museum is situated in the well preserved cultural landscape of Karvasmäki village, where farms and holdings were already established in the Middle Ages. The buildings in the large yard area at Glims are in their original locations. The oldest ones are the storage shed and the old dwelling, both from the 18th century. Glims was still a working farm at the beginning of the 20th century. Glims served as an inn and hostelry from 1778 to 1822 and from 1891 to 1901. Glims has been a museum since 1958.
