WHAT WE OFFER AT PRESENT

As the restoration continues, we can offer guided tours in the Kosola House for groups, explaining the types of damage found in the house and their causes as well as the methods and materials used to repair them.

Along with the progress of the restoration, we will also arrange guided tours for groups about the history of the house and its occupants.

For bus groups, we arrange tours with a historical theme in the region of South Ostrobothnia.

Trip to ancient burial place near Kosola house

Our trips include on of the most significant burial sites of Finland, which is the Levähuhta burial site. It used to be a small lake that was used as a place to bury people from 400 to 900 AD. Bones of about 100 people have been found at the site and most of them belonged to women and children. The dead were buried with e.g. bracelets, neck rings, chains, bucles and rings, which are partly very valuable telling about the high social status of the deceased. The burial site is of very rare type even internationally. 

WHAT WE WILL OFFER WHEN THE RESTORATION HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO COMPLETION

The house will open in stages along with the progress of the restoration: 

First, a café and an à la carte restaurant will be opened in the section of Kosola House that was built in 1861. In the next stage, the larger section completed in 1887 will open, providing meeting and exhibition facilities and a small, personal shop. Exhibitions and guided tours will gradually create content for the Ostrobothnia Heritage Centre, which will present the distinctive cultural history and architectural heritage of South Ostrobothnia. The aim is also to arrange different kinds of thematic courses, evening parties and other interesting events throughout the year.
