Österbottens Museum Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Cast brass doors (1929) lead into the museum; they depict the inauguration of the court of appeal of Korsholm 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) and displays country furniture. The Hedman collections, bequeathed by Doctor Karl Hedman (1865-1931), include works by great Finnish painters (rooms 2 to 5) and foreign pictures, in particular 15C-17C Italian and Flemish works (rooms 6 to 8).
