You get to know what Kimito Island meant to the successful businessman and patron, and how he transformed the farm’s log house into an Italian-inspired villa. You get an overview of the farm’s activities today, and can also read about how the museum achieved its original 1930s shape during the extensive renovation 2019–2020.
