Kempele Local History Museum

The Local History Museum on Kirkkotie road near the centre is a traditional Northern Ostrobothnian courtyard where the buildings represent different time periods. Specialities include a small house built by WWII soldiers for their comrade in arms behind the frontlines as well as and a turf cottage, both unique in Finland. The current main building made of logs dates from 1886, with the main room, four bedrooms, porch and two verandas. In the beginning of last century, the Kempele Säästöpankki bank had its office in the “bank room” for about 30 years.
