Let’s Explore Books

A guided walking tour, duration 1–1.5 h

Books and literature have been a part of life in Tyrvää already for five hundred years. Who were Annastuuna Korkeemäki and Niilo Ikola? And what do books made of stone tell us? We will learn about the history of book printing in the area, the library, the local newspaper, and the bookstore. You will experience the famed Finnish children’s writer Mauri Kunnas’s world at Mr. Clutterbuck’s House. The tour ends at Pukstaavi, the Museum of Book, where you will find, for example, the treasured Psalterium.
