The collections of the museum now consist of 17 000 objects. The basic collection is made up of the old surviving collections that have been moved to Jyväskylä. It is our aim to add to the collection with careful selection and planning. From the present day we keep essential phenomena of the handicraft culture for the collection. Quality is more important than quantity in the collections at the moment.
The museum’s reference library consists of more than 5000 publications on handicraft, the craft industry and just about everything made by hand. The collection of the library also includes Finnish and foreign magazines. Most of the material is in Finnish.
