Merimasku – The Old Isotalo Croft

Kollola Local History Centre in Merimasku consists of the Old Isotalo Croft and its outbuildings. Kollola is the former farmstead of the Järvensuu village, which was redeemed in the 1920s. The original appearance of the building is well preserved, with the house interior revealing how the last resident lived. Kollola is located near Taattistenjärvi lake, on the old Rymättylä-Mynämäki road. In addition to the residential building, it includes a sauna building and a barn.

A special exhibition will be held in the barn during summertime. The barn side, which is decorated with a charming summer cafe, will host introductions to the exhibition on Wednesday nights in July. The Merimasku-seura also presents Kollola on request.

Opening hours can be found at Naantali City website (in Finnish).
