Österbottens Museum

Recommended
Cast brass doors (1929) lead into the Ostrobothnia Museum; they depict the inauguration of the Korsholm court of appeal in 1776 and the fire of 1852. The regional history section evokes Vaasa's golden age, at the time of the tar trade (16C-18C). The Hedman Collections, bequeathed by Doctor Karl Hedman (1865-1931), include works by some of the great Finnish painters, as well as foreign paintings.
