SARKA – THE FINNISH MUSEUM OF AGRICULTURE

Sarka is a national special museum situated in Loimaa, South-Western Finland. The museum shows the history of Finnish Agriculture in a modern, versatile and interesting way.

The base exhibition:

THE AGE OF AGRICULTURE – THE STORY OF FARMING IN FINLAND

Agriculture and its environments have evolved over the millennia, and agriculture itself has created changes in its setting. This exhibition is a journey through the three-thousand-year history of farming in Finland. The age of agriculture is one of labour, cultivated species, domesticated animals, arable fields, burn-cleared swidden plots and pastures; it is a landscape. The age of agriculture has a beginning, but no end. The exhibition has its ending, but the age of agriculture lives on.

Additionally there is a separate hall with an exhibition of tractors and other farming machinery. The main building also has three different spaces for exchanging exhibitions and spaces for seminars and feasts.
