From coffee cups to horse wagons

The museum collection at Stundars houses approximately 10 000 objects illustrating rural society in Swedish-speaking Ostrobothnia in the period from 1870 to 1920. The history of the objects in the country shop extends into the 1940s. The items and pieces of clothing that are on display in the museum may be of an even earlier date, but they have been in active use during this period. The furnishings, clothes and tools displayed illustrate the different social classes in a late 19th century village. There is also a collection of special tools, which is on display in the pottery, copper-smithy and brass foundry.
