Parking Topp

By the entrance to Stundars Open-Air Museum, there is free parking. During the bigger events, there is also parking on the other side of Solfvägen-Sulvantie. Cars with a disability permit are allowed to park near the entrance.

Accessibility with a wheelchair, walker, prams, stroller or other disability aids Topp

The entrance to Stundars Open-Air Museum, right beside the yellow Information booth, is situated in a low, upwards slope, but with an assistant, it is easy to get into and move around the museum village.

In the museum village, there are broad paths and gravel roads with hard-packed gravel that is easy to use in a wheelchair and with prams and strollers. We level out the gravel regularly.

Here and there in the museum village, there are benches to sit on.

There are also small, old-time carts that you can borrow for tiny, tired legs.

At Stundars, even the buildings themselves are valuable museal artefacts. The Ostrobothnian farmhouses and crofts usually have steps up to the outer door, that has high thresholds and low doorframes. The floors are traditionally broad wooden planks that can be uneven. Unfortunately, we are not allowed, due to museal reasons, to alter these to better suit wheelchairs, strollers or people with balance challenges. Our staff is happy to help you, to the best of their ability, to experience as much of this historical milieu as possible.

On this page, you can see, hear and read about the different buildings at the Stundars Open-Air Museum.

There are ramps to Cirka’s café and to the front door of Hemmer House. In the Hemmer House, there is an elevator to the second floor, but you do need a member of the staff to use the elevator.

The assistant’s entrance fee to Stundars Open-Air Museum is on the house.

Assistant dogs are allowed into the museum buildings.

Toilettes Topp

Around the corner from the Printing Museum, there is a handicap toilet. The signs say Inva-WC. There, you can also change on your baby or breastfeed away from cold air and draught. The toilettes in the museum village are unfortunately not handicap friendly.

There are special props and copies of traditional objects that you can touch and even try to use in the Smithy’s cottage and used in some of the activities. We also provide textures and materials, for example a piece of seal fur, to aid the understanding and experience.

Our miniature landscape, casted in bronze, is situated near the yellow Information and ticket booth. On that, you can feel how the different museum buildings are placed in the museum village. The names of the houses are written in Braille.

We welcome groups that wish a guided tour in plain language in Swedish, Finnish and English. Please let us know in advance if you will be needing this service.

Allergies Topp

We recommend visitors that are allergic to, for example grass, deciduous trees or fur-bearing animals to take preventive medicines before the visit to Stundars. People allergic to insects should always have the appropriate medicines with them. In Cirka’s café and at Hemmer’s reservation restaurant, the staff can tell you about the ingredients of their menus, and they offer vegan and lactose and/or gluten free alternatives.

Stundars Open-Air Museum is indeed situated in the beautiful Ostrobothnian countryside, surrounded by cultivated as well as natural gardens, fields and forests. Especially in summer, there are a lot of the usual allergens in the air. In the museum buildings, there are different natural materials like sheep’s wool and horsehair, as well as fragrant potted plants. Sensitive noses may also react to some of the flowering garden plants in and around the museum village. At Stundars, eliminating invasive species like the strongly scented lupine, is part of our environmental work. Almost every day, the grass or hay is also cut or trimmed in some part of the vast museum grounds, and in the maintenance of the museum buildings, strong-smelling materials are used, like tar, and certain areas may temporarily be dusty.

Dogs on a leash are allowed on the grounds in the museum village, and the neighbour’s cat Algot is visiting almost daily. In summer, there are goats, chicken and rabbits in the petting zoo at Stundars, and we might even get a visit by horses and ponies.

We aim to use ecological and traditional cleaning substances in the caretaking of the museum, and when we restore or build something new in the museum village. Stundars have vowed to save on natural resources, and we have been granted the EcoCompass certificate. Here you can read more about our environmental work.
