The Nail Museum (Naulamuseo)
The nail factory was established in Jokioinen in 1804. The factory manufactured nails, barbed wire, steel cable and sheet metal. The manufacture of nails continues to this day.
The Parsonage Museum (Pappilamuseo)
The provincial governor E. G. von Willebrand built the parsonage out of clay and straw in 1800, but it had to be covered immediately with bricks because the materials could not survive the Finnish weather. The museum preserves evidence of the ways of life in a country vicarage in the mid-1800s. The collections also include mementos of Miina Sillanpää’s life and pharmacy equipment from the 1800s.
