Jan Karlsgården open-air museum
The museum was founded in the 1930s and got its name from the farm Jan Karls in Finström, from where the main building was also moved. All buildings at Jan Karlsgården have been brought here from various parts of the Åland islands. Jan Karlsgården provides the visitor with a comprehensive view of the life and building traditions that once existed here.
During the summer different kind of activity days are arranged, and ever since the 1940s a traditional midsummer pole has been risen at Jan Karlsgården on Midsummer’s Eve. Lillajulmarknaden, the biggest Christmas market on Åland, takes place at Jan Karlsgården during the first weekend in December.
