For those interested in Finland’s religious history and Christian paraphernalia, this museum tour provides an excellent opportunity to discover a mid-18th century bench of shame, the organ of a small church in Lapinjärvi and a Baroque-style preacher’s pulpit from 1689.
 
Come and see the photographs, sculptures, paintings and numerous other essential religious artefacts from wine jugs to church bells! The religious artefacts of the Mäntsälä church museum room, the Pukkila church, the Pornainen Parish Museum and the Porlammi Museum include a variety of material dating back several hundred years. The Pornainen and Porlammi Museums also showcase local tools, everyday life utensils as well as other regional paraphernalia. 
 
The museum buildings themselves are also worth a look: the beautiful wooden church of Pulkkila dates back to 1814, while the brick church in Mäntsälä was inaugurated in 1866.
