Artefact Museum (Esinemuseo)
The artefact museum is in an old parish storehouse, which was built in 1855. It is located in the north-west corner of Hollola cemetery. The local heritage society bought the parish storehouse in 1952 and the renovation of the place was completed already the following year. At the same time, artefacts were being collected and listed to become part of the museum. The artefact museum was opened June 3rd in 1960.
The floor below the artefact museum used to be a storage for grains, which is why it has double wooden walls. Double walls kept the air fresh and prevented theft.
The permanent exhibition presents the results of the archaeological excavations in the Hollola area. The exhibition has been renewed in 2006 and 2007 by Lahti City Museum.
