Palander’s House presents the life of a bourgeois family in Hämeenlinna. The museum is located in the idyllic 19th-century wooden house area in the city center of Hämeenlinna.
In the museum, you can admire not only the permanent exhibition but also annual seasonal exhibitions. Palander’s House during Christmas and Easter provides information and atmosphere about the traditions from 1800’s.
Visitors to are guided by a host or hostess, daughter, servant, or maid of the house, who welcomes museum guests every half hour during the museum’s opening hours. A guided tour in finnish can accommodate up to 10 people at a time.
We recommend that groups make reservations in advance so that we can allocate enough staff.
One can find a small museum shop next to the ticket sales where we sell various souvenirs, interesting books, and cards related to the history of Hämeenlinna and, of course, Palander’s House. The selection also includes souvenirs and handmade domestic soaps and handicrafts from Työkeskus Sampola.
Welcome to a journey back to the 1800s!
