Kuru Open Air Museum

The main attraction of the museum is Ensign Stål’s cabin from the 1750s. This is where Ensign Karl Gustaf Polviander lived. He fought in the Swedish army against Napoleon’s troops in Germany in 1807 and took part in the War of Finland (1808–1809). In addition to the ensign’s cabin, the open-air museum consists of a loft storehouse and two smaller storehouses. Legend has it that one of these was built in the late 17th century, which would make it one of the oldest wooden buildings in the region.
