“Inspirational”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

The whole family enjoyed this museum. ( even the boys!) lots to look at. The crafts on display were creative and unique and put a smile on your face. There is a room where you could make a variety of crafts for a small fee. Well worth the visit.

Reviewed July 14, 2012

There was a craft shop with Finish handcrafts, a little pricey, but that stuff usually is.

“Great exhibition space with open workshop.”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Unfortunately the main museum was closed when we visited but there was an exhibtion of art work which we both really enjoyed. There is an open workshop where you can make your own souvenir, all tools and materials are available - incredible!

“Nice little museum with a shop”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Have visited here quite often, usually christmass time when trying to find unique christmass gifts from the little shop. The museum, like all in Jyväskylä, has free entry on Fridays. Note also, that they're closed on Mondays.
The craft museum of Finland is located in the beginning of pedestrian street, next to Taito Shop, which is a small shop selling crafts and small-scale manufactured products, don't miss this place when visiting The craft museum. Museum is easy to find and has also websites in english, deutsch, russian and swedish. They have also noted handicapped people with a great effect! They even have a "Sensespace", where the art can be touched, smelled and listened. On the finnish website there is more info.
