Kulttuuriperintöä, kulttuurielämää (Finnish) / Kulturarv, kulturliv (Swedish)

The association behind Porvoo Museum was founded in 1896 with the goal to rescue the dilapidated Old Town Hall (built 1764) and found a museum for the region of Porvoo. After 125 years the building is still standing tall and the association is still in charge of the museum. This anniversary publication is an overview of the history of the association and the museum from its founding until today. The book outlines the museum’s growth to a regional influencer and a central cultural operator in Porvoo. Author, M.A. Marketta Tamminen, director of Porvoo Museum 1980–2004. Publications by Porvoon museoyhdistys no 12; 192 pages.
