The Finns are the happiest nation in the world; education and culture belong to the cornerstones of welfare. We believe learning is active and engaging. Our tours lead you through the secrets of Finnish culture and nature, industrial development and national art treasures in a fun way. Hands-on activities, exciting stories, art, architecture, and of course delicious meals are available on our educational tours at the Serlachius Manor and Serlachius Headquarters.

You can choose from one hour’s programme to several days’ field trips. We provide also educational tours in the Art Town and surrounding nature. For university students and adults we can arrange e.g. sustainability themed tour including field trips or art themed tours with workshops led by professional artists.

Serlachius Museums offer art or history themed guided tours and workshops for schools and pupils in Tampere Region.

Educational Tours at Serlachius Manor

Serlachius prepares tailor-made programme for educational groups. Choose a theme that is suited for your group. Together with Serlachius Museums personnel you can make a program based on your needs. A day passes quickly at Serlachius Manor by exploring and making art. The exhibitions at Selachius Manor’s extension building and old manor introduce you to different art movements and techniques. You have a chance to make your own art as well!

On a guided tour for schools at Museum Gustaf we take a peak into the intensely dramatised main exhibition, do some activating exercises and view artworks.

Educational Tours at Serlachius Headquarters

NOTE: The Serlachius Headquarters is under renovation until 15 June 2024. Programmes and tours available again when museum opens with new exhibitions!

In addition to art, Serlachius Headquarters tells stories of history. Versatile exhibitions will give impulses to all your senses. You can also learn by doing. Methods adopted from theatre can enliven both exhibitions as well as guided tours. At the magnificent former head office building of G. A. Serlachius Company, you will get an interesting introduction to the history of paper industry, trade and business. Make your own mix of the program available at Serlachius Headquarters!
