Thorvaldsenin museo

Mikään kokoelmista ja niiden kuvista, joita olen luetteloinut, ei ole ollut niin ainutlaatuinen kuin kokoelma matkakuvista, joita on otettu ympäri Eurooppaa. Valokuva-albumi lukolla, joka oli Helene Bergbomin (os. Gripenberg) omistama, on täynnä valokuvia erilaisista paikoista Norjasta, Tanskasta, Saksasta, Ranskasta (Louvresta) ja Ruotsista 1800-luvun loppu puollella. Suurin osa kuvista on otettu Norjassa, ja kuvat esittävät erilaisia rakennuksia Oslossa (silloin Kristiania), sauvakirkkoja ja kauniita maisema kuvia. Mutta albumin kiinnostavimmat valokuvat olivat Thorvaldsenin museosta Kööpenhaminassa, Tanskassa. Lue lisää alla!Läs mera »

Thorvaldsen Museum

Of all the collections that I have catalogued, none of them has been as unique as a collection of pictures taken across Europe. In a photo album with a lock, which belonged to Helene Bergbom (née Gripenberg), there are many photos taken from different places in Norway, Denmark, Germany, France (the Louvre) and Sweden at the end of the 19th century. Most of the photos are taken in Norway and the photos depicts different buildings in Oslo (back then known as Christiania), a stave church and beautiful landscape shots. But the most interesting photos of the album was from Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark. Read more down below!Läs mera »

Thorvaldsens museum

Av alla samlingar jag har katalogiserat har ingen av dem varit så unik som en samling av resebilder tagna runtom i Europa. I ett fotoalbum med lås, som har tillhört Helene Bergbom (f. Gripenberg), finns det mycket med foton från olika platser i Norge, Danmark, Tyskland, Frankrike (Louvren) och Sverige på slutet av 1800-talet. De flesta var tagna i Norge och i fotona kan man se olika byggnader i Oslo (på den tiden Kristiania), en stavkyrka och fina landskapsfoton. Men albumets intressantaste foton var från Thorvaldsens museum i Köpenhamn, Danmark. Läs mera nedan!Läs mera »

Tankar om en hållbar framtid

Under de senaste åren har man inom museibranschen funderat på hur man kan understöda utvecklingen av ett hållbart samhället och en hållbar framtid. Hertonäs gårds museum har under de senaste åren på flera vis gått med i trenden och vi strävar ytterligare att arbeta för att främja så kallade gröna värden. Temat diskuterades senast på bland annat en internationell kongress anordnad av ICOM och på ett inhemskt seminarium anordnat av Helsingfors stadsmuseum. Fastän vi är ett litet museum har vi olika metoder och strategier för detta. Läs mer nedan!Läs mera »

Ajatuksia kestävästä kehityksestä

Viimeisten vuosien aikana museoalalla on mietitty, miten voisi kannustaa kestävän kehityksen edistämistä yhteiskunnassa ja tulevaisuudessa. Herttoniemen kartanon museo on viime vuosina monin tavoin osallistunut tähän ja tavoitteenamme on edelleen työskennelle niin kutsuttujen kestävien arvojen edistämiseksi. Teemaa käsiteltiin viimeksi muun muassa kansainvälisessä konferenssissa, jonka ICOM järjesti sekä kotimaisessa Helsingin kaupunginmuseon järjestämässä seminaarissa. Siitä huolimatta, että museomme on pieni meillä on kuitenkin eri metodeja ja strategioita kehittämistä varten. Lue lisää alla! Läs mera »

Some Thoughts on a Sustainable Future

During the last few years there has been discussions about how to support the environmental movement and a sustainable future in museums. Hertonäs Manor Museum has worked with this for a few years now and we strive to develop so called green values. This was recently discussed at an international congress arranged by ICOM and at a local seminar arranged by Helsinki City Museum. A small museum like ours still has many aims to support the development. Read more below! Läs mera »

Avträdet på Knusbacka allmogemuseum

Knusbacka är en gammal bondgård med anor från den svenska tiden på 1700-talet. Gården förflyttades från Box i Sibbo till Hertonäs gård och dess museiområde i östra Helsingfors under 1920-talet. På Knusbackas gårdsplan finns även ett gammalt avträde. Det brukar Hertonäs gårds museums guider visa besökarna i samband med den historiska rundvandringen på Hertonäs gård och Knusbacka museigård. Guidningen ordnas under säsongstid från början av maj till slutet av september på söndagar klockan 14 till 15. Guiderna visar museigården och avträdet även som avslutning för guidningar för extra beställda grupper. Vad är det som gör ett gammalt avträde intressant? Hur förhöll man sig till avföring i det gamla bondesamhället? Hade avträdena någon annan funktion under den tid då de flesta var bosatta på gårdar på landsbygden? Läs mer nedan.Läs mera »

Knusbackan museotilalla oleva ulkokäymälä

Knusbacka on vanha maatila, joka on peräisin Ruotsin ajalta, 1700-luvulta. Tila siirrettiin Sipoon Boxista Herttoniemen kartanolle ja nykyiselle paikalleen Itä-Helsinkiin 1920-luvulla. Knusbackan rakennuksiin kuuluu myös vanha ulkokäymälä. Herttoniemen kartanon museon oppaat esittelevät sitä kävijöille Herttoniemen kartanon ja Knusbackan museotilan aluetta kiertävän historiallisen opastuksen aikana. Opastus järjestetään sesonkiaikaan toukokuun alusta syyskuun loppuun sunnuntaisin klo 14-15. Lisäksi oppaat esittelevät museomaatilaa ja ulkokäymälää tilattujen opastuskierrosten päätteeksi. Mikä tekee vanhasta ulkokäymälästä kiinnostavan? Miten vanhassa maalaisyhteisössä suhtauduttiin ulosteisiin? Oliko käymälöillä jokin toinen funktio siihen aikaan, kun useimmat ihmiset asuivat maaseudun tiloilla? Lue lisää alla.Läs mera »

The Outhouse at Knusbacka Farmstead

Knusbacka is an old farmstead from the era of Swedish rule in the 18th century. The farmstead has been moved from Box in Sipoo to Hertonäs manor and its surroundings in eastern Helsinki during the 1920s. An old outhouse is also remaining on Knusbacka’s yard. The guides at Hertonäs Manor Museum usually present it to the public during the guided tours at Hertonäs manor and Knusbacka farmstead. Guided tours are arranged on Sundays at 2 to 3 PM from May to September. The guides also present the farmstead and the outdoor toilet for booked groups. What makes an old outdoor toilet interesting? How did people relate to excrement in the old peasant society? Did the outdoor toilets have other functions during an era when most people lived on rural farms? Read more below.Läs mera »

Fotograferandet på Hertonäs gård

Fotografins historia är fylld av multipla uppfinnare och upptäckter, som tillsammans skapat den typ av fotografi vi har idag. Under första hälften av 1800-talet gjordes de flesta genombrott som möjliggjorde fotografering. Olika kemiska preparat, material och komponenter utvecklades för framkallning, och fotograferandet blev snabbt mycket populärt. Också herrskapet på Hertonäs gård och deras släktingar lät fotografera sig. Det finns bl. a. flera stiliga visitkortsfotografier i Hertonäs gårds museums samlingar. Läs mer nedan!Läs mera »

Some Thoughts on a Sustainable Future

15.10.2021 kl. 14:24
During the last few years there has been discussions about how to support the environmental movement and a sustainable future in museums. Hertonäs Manor Museum has worked with this for a few years now and we strive to develop so called green values. This was recently discussed at an international congress arranged by ICOM and at a local seminar arranged by Helsinki City Museum. A small museum like ours still has many aims to support the development. Read more below!

During the last decade it has become increasingly important to discuss how different institutions can guarantee and work for a sustainable future. Also museums have taken up this discussion both internationally and on a local level. During the first week in October the museum’s Curator participated in an international congress arranged by the DEMHIST-network of ICOM. The network is formed by house. And manormuseums worldwide. The congress was arranged online with circa 50 participants. One could hear many interesting sessions and we also had joint session presenting posters. Hertonäs Manor Museum also got the opportunity to present a poster about our aims to support a sustainable future (Hertonäs Manor Museum för a Sustainable Future, see the picture of the poster below). The Curator got many tips on how to increase visibility and get in touch with institutions and strive for co-operation to promote these aims. 

Hertonäs Manor Museum is surrounded by unique, historical parks. They form a green oasis in the environment in East-Helsinki that is increasingly urbanized. The City of Helsinki, STARA, maintains the parks with great respect for their past. Photo: EAW 2019.

All in all, the goals and aims for our own museum was presented at ICOM’s congress. First of all the museum is surrounded by two historical parks - one in Barock and the other in English style - and these are open to the public. All over the world parks form green lungs of cities and this is also the case in Herttoniemi in Helsinki. Our parks are maintained by the city of Helsinki ("STARA") with great respect för their historical values. A second point is that the museum’s buildings nowadays are warmed by geothermal energy. It was costly to install, but pays off both economically and ecologically in the long run. A third goal materialized as we got our own beehives in the yard och Knusbacka farmstead. Pollinators are under threat globally and we are pride to be able to provide a healthy environment for them. Besides, they produce honey that we sell. The environment is safe for bees since our tenant, Stadin puutarhuri, is an ecofarmer. The crops are produced locally and ecologically and are very popular. We also have museopedagogical work that aim to teach about sustainability. This activity is timetravels presented by the society DOT at Knusbacka farmstead. The timetravels are for pupils at schools. We also inform the visitors of the man’s relation to the environment and show the public our small garden with herbs etc. Last, but not least, the society SOV that upholds the museum, strives to have a greener stockportfolio. 

During the summer the museum has beehives in Knusbacka farmstead’s yard. There is plenty of greenery for them to enjoy. They are handled by Hive Five. They produce honey that we sell at the museum. Photo: EAW 2020.

Sustainability was also one of the things discussed at another seminar, The Gardens of Museums in Uusimaa, last Monday. It was arranged both physically and online by Helsinki City Museum. Focus was on gardens of museums, men simultaneously so called green values were discussed in many of the presentations. Glims Farmstead Museum in Espoo presented their long term project: having bees and animals in the area in the summer. The garden at the museum has existed for decades and now they have started to sell their hop to a local producer of beer. Our Knusbacka has also had a garden for years now and we cultivated different traditional herbs that are presented for the visitors. The idea of sustainability is not new, it is as old as mankind and its life in the environment. But now it is finally time to use this knowledge once again and this is done very well by informing the public in various ways.


The museum’s poster at ICOM’s international congress was presented online 7th October 2021. EAW 2021.
