Welcome
 
The owner of Vantaa Agricultural Museum is Helsinge Lantmannagille r.f. Vanda. The association was founded in 1882 and is one of the oldest in the city.
 
 
   
 
The museum is a bilingual local museum with objects from the old Helsingin maalaiskunta, a region that included modern-day Vantaa as well as parts of Helsinki and Tuusula.
   
 
The museum is newly built and consists of two buildings: Emil and Maiju. Emil was inaugurated and taken in use in 2006. Apart from the exhibition space on the first floor, the building contains meeting facilities on the second floor that are for hire in the summer season. There is room for up to 50 persons in the facilities and a kitchen with refrigerator and freezer is available. The second building, Maiju, contains festive- and meeting facilities for up to 100 persons and can be used year-round.
   
The rapid urbanisation of Vantaa means that the traces of the old
    Helsingin maalaiskunta, which was a distinctive rural society,    
   
vanish in an increasing pase. To preserve some of the city’s historical heritage Helsinge Lantmannagille started the museum project in the late 1980s.The museum is primarily meant for people who have recently moved to Vantaa and want to get to know their hometown, but also for old residents that want to acquaint themselves with the history of the city.
     
 
The location near Vantaankoski, one of Vantaa´s cultural centres and the Helsinki-Vantaa airport, means that even visitors from afar can easily visit the museum.
