Come join us and experience firsthand what life was like for Espoo’s fishermen in the first half of the 20th century at the Pentala Archipelago Museum! Located on Pentala Island in the Espoo archipelago, the museum takes you on a guided tour that combines nature and history through the historic Suvisaristo tenant fishing manor with a backdrop of the Pentala Nature Reserve. Admission is free of charge for school groups and early childhood education groups. Group size is equal to one classroom.

To book a guided tour please make your reservation at least one week in advance. If your group requires special accommodations, we will gladly make the appropriate arrangements, but please notify us at the time of booking. While visiting the island, you can eat your packed lunch at the Lilla Villa located on the museum grounds or order food from the nearby Paven Restaurant.
