Ruisrock 1970 – How it all began
Ruisrock 1970 – How it all began will open as soon as we can guarantee safe museum visits.
This exhibition tells you how the festival came to be, how everything felt and what it looked like that weekend in August 1970. What was it like to organize a festival nearly eight times larger than expected with no previous experience? The treasures from Antero Laiho’s home archives, photographs by Jouko Keto along with newspaper and film material from the time lead you to the world of peace and love, accompanied of course by music of the era. Come and experience the festival atmosphere from over 50 years ago!

Our new exhibition, Sibelius – the one and only, offers a slightly different perspective to Sibelius. It’s about the person, the music, the everyday life: friends, family, concert trips and nature.
