What are we going to do

Duration: 1 h 15 min
Location: Kuivakorventie, Forssa

Group: 4-25 people

Wiksberg manor was here before the factories. Its history is entangled with the industrial revolution and the formation of the city we call Forssa. The manor house burned down in 1978 and most of what is left is hidden underground and among the overgrown garden.

New information was dug up in 2020 when Forssa museum performed an archaeological survey and excavations on site together with local high school students. This new information has been written into a guided tour through the manor grounds.

Join us on a walk down the old parkways.

We recommend that you wear comfortable, weather-appropriate, outdoor clothing and good shoes for the tour. The terrain might be moist and uneven in places. The site is not unfortunately accessible by wheelchair.

On a hot day, we recommend that you bring a water bottle with you.

We are in nature so there is no toilet on site.




Kiitos teille sinne Museolle! Olimme tyttären tyttären kanssa katsomassa paikkoja, joissa hänen 1800-luvun lopulla työnsä 12-vuotiaana aloittanut "mummonsa" oli työssä. Unohtumaton kokemus meille molemmille.
Lämpimästi kiittäen hienosti toteutetusta vierailusta. Sirpa Hämäläinen


Kiitos Asta, hieno perehdytys historiaan!
