Overview
More
Raahe Museum is Finland's oldest local museum, established in 1862. The museum has grown over the decades and now consists of seven operational units. Two of the locations (Packhouse and Crown Granary) are open all year round. The Packhouse (Rantakatu 33) extensively depicts the Age of Sailing. Among its collections is also an exceptionally extensive set of religious sculptures from the 17th century.Perhaps the most famous artefact in Raahe Museum, the world's oldest surviving diving suit,the Old Gentleman - is now displayed in the diving section of the Crown Granary (Merikatu 10). Five other museums are open during different city festivals and by appointment. More information from our website.
