Sustainable Travel Path


Serlachius Museums have achieved ISO 14001 certification in December 2021. Only few museums have been awarded this internationally known certificate; Serlachius wants to be progressive and sustainable in ecological, cultural and economical way — meaning goal-directed actions.

On the basis of ISO 14001 certification, Serlachius has been awarded the Sustainable Travel Finland label by Visit Finland, which shows that we take sustainable tourism seriously. The businesses and organizations that have received the label are committed to respect and nurture Finnish nature, lifestyle and culture.

“The Sustainable Travel Finland label is a concrete indication of Serlachius Museums’ commitment to sustainable operations and concrete actions in line with sustainable development,” says Virpi Aittokoski, the Sustainable Travel Manager from Business Finland’s Visit Finland unit.

Serlachius bus runs on the days that the museums are open.
