The Renovation Centre Toivo and Korsman House

Pori's V District houses a plot owned by the Satakunta Museum, which is home to four residential buildings more than a century old and an outbuilding. The yard is a peaceful wooden house idyll whose buildings have been harnessed to tell stories about traditional construction methods and wooden buildings. At the renovation exhibition of the museum's renovation construction building, or the Renovation Centre Toivo, you can familiarise yourself with the traditional form of construction with wood as well as see the materials and methods used to construct buildings. The exhibition building, constructed of timber, has unfinished areas showing construction stages and the history of the building. Korsman House is a dwelling of two bedrooms and a kitchen and its interior design reflects the home of the imaginary Korsman family, set in 1951 with its cots and old-fashioned radio. The inner yard is a stage for several events.
