Finnish Folk Art Museum

The Pasadena Museum of History is home to the Fenyes Mansion which formerly served as the Finnish Consulate's Office.  The mansion is now a part of the museum and the mansion's guest house has become the Finnish Folk Art Museum or "tupa." 


The Los Angeles Finlandia Foundation maintains an artifact collection representing artifacts from Finland, mainly from the mid-1800's time period from the Pohjanmaa (Ostrobothnia) region in Western Finland.
