What are we going to do

The manor’s host leads guests to the area’s stories and past, as well as current exhibitions and other displays. Guests will be taken on a tour of the mansion halls' collections and exhibitions all the way to the secrets of the Japanese and Chinese dynasties.
During the tour, we will see the Manor Gallery's offer with changing art exhibitions on the second floor of the main building.
You will get acquainted with old tapestries, miniature paintings, charming hat needles, a copper pastry mode collection, nostalgic old-fashioned toys and more than 200 Barbie's rooms.
At the end of the tour you will have a coffee on the manor terrace and after that you can relax in the beautiful lake view or take a walk in the manor’s statue parks and gardens. In addition, on show days, the doors are open to guests in medieval vaulted cellars.

About Härkälän kartano - the Doer

We have practiced martial arts in our youth. That´s how our interest in Japanese and later Chinese culture started. Interest in Finnish art began in the 1980´s and began to accumulate on the walls of our homes. After we bought and renovated Harkala Manor, it became possible to expand the collections and display them to visitors. The doors were opened to the public in 2008, but the history of the manor begins in 1593 as Somero’s first manor. The initial stages are related to the Swedish King Sigismund's land donations to warlords. With the manor, our interest has grown both in our own roots and to the local cultural history and history of Finland.

Requirements

The second floor of the manor, where some of the exhibitions are located, is not suitable for the disabled.
Children are welcome under the supervision of their guardians.
We follow the region's covid - 19 recommendations. We take care of each other's health. We have antiseptic hand rub that we hope everyone will use.
