Church Builders Museum

The Church Builders Museum, located in a bell tower next to Savitaipale church, presents the traces of the masters of their time. The museum presents the works of the famous Savitaipale church builders Juhana and Matti Salonen, as well as Taavetti Rahikainen. The bell tower also contains ecclesiastical artefacts, textiles and furniture. Church benches, hymn boards and marriage stools are examples of handicrafts of their time. The exhibition also displays a miniature of Savitaipale’s burnt church. In addition, a handsome old organ and stocks dating back to 1830 are worth admiring.
