All houses and buildings stood once in or near Torsby. From the museum grounds, you can enjoy a great view of the lake and the surrounding countryside.

One of the buildings is a traditional Finnish smoke house. Smoke houses were built without a chimney, so that the smoke and warmth from the fireplace would stay under the roof. You can also visit an 18th-century country store, where you can buy old-fashioned candy. In the old storehouse, a collection of original artefacts will tell you more about the development of Torsby from a stone age settlement to the regional centre that it is now.

The museum café offers homebaked refreshments and local specialties. Next to the museum, you will find a public bathing area down by the lake.
