Last weekend we celebrated All Saint's Day at the museum. Sunday 1st was also the last day this year that the museum was open to the public. To highlight this we arranged a smallscale event at Knusbacka and in the park. Read more below!

Sunday 1st of November was the last day Hertonäs Manor Museum was open to the public this year. To highlight this and the fact that this weekend was All Saint's Day, we arranged a small event at Knusbacka and the park in the late afternoon from 3 to 6 PM.

The museum's curator held a short presentation in Finnish and Swedish about traditions linked to All Saint's Day in Finland. We streamed live on Facebook for the first time and ha a few viewers - thank you! In the park we arranged a path of reflexes for families and kids in the darkening evening. Knusbacka was open free of charge. About 50 persons participated and we were glad we could do most of the afternoon outdoors in these unpleastant times.
