The Craft Museum is a place where skills and people meet as well as an interesting destination for visitors. The museum covers all techniques of craft, from house building to lace making and from forging to the design of ornaments. A centre for national costumes and a centre well versed in the conservation of textiles form part of the museum.
Museum situates in the very centre of Jyväskylä on the pedestrian street.The museum shares the same building with the Taito Shop and the offices of the Crafts Association of Central Finland. The result is an interesting and versatile destination for visitors, offering not only exhibitions, but also workshops, a museum shop, the Taito Shop specializing in gifts, information on national costumes.
The collections of the museum now consist of 17 000 objects. The basic collection is made up of the old surviving collections that have been moved to Jyväskylä. It is our aim to add to the collection with careful selection and planning. From the present day we keep essential phenomena of the handicraft culture for the collection. Quality is more important than quantity in the collections at the moment.
