Pukstaavi, The Museum of Finnish Book offers information and book-related experiences to all who are interested in books and reading, regardless of age. Exhibitions, guided tours, lectures, courses, workshops, publications and diverse events open fresh perspectives on the past and present of books.
The main exhibition tells the tale of the Finnish book from incunabula to the e-book. It gives a voice to people interested in books, including readers, librarians, printers and publishers. The exhibition also highlights the links between books and the development of schools, churches, politics and the entire society. Changing exhibitions focus on topical phenomena and people related to books and reading.
Pukstaavi is on the street Marttilankatu, in the centre of Sastamala, in a beautiful 1920s building with a gambrel roof. After your tour to the museum, you can enjoy a fresh cup of tea or coffee at the café Pukstaavi and visit the museum shop for unique souvenirs.
