Ahlström Voyage exhibition

The past and present of the Noormarkku Works, Ahlström family and Ahlström companies.

The Ahlström Voyage exhibition in the old workshop provides an interesting look at the history and present of the Ahlström companies, the family and the Noormarkku Works over a period of more than 170 years. The company’s story is a significant part of Finnish industrial, architectural, art and design history. 

The exhibition includes art glass from the company’s Iittala, Karhula and Riihimäki glass factories, because there is a sizeable collection of pieces designed by e.g. Tapio Wirkkala and Timo Sarpaneva on display, along with several unique Savoy vases (also known as the Aalto vase) designed by Alvar Aalto. A spectacular model of the ironworks area is also on display. 

The exhibition is explored with a guide, either on a public or private tour. As the exhibition is extensive, there are also several different themed tours available.

The exhibition space has disabled access. There is also a lift.
There is also a museum shop on the premises.
Café Voyage and its terrace are open during the summer season.
