Isokyrö Homestead museum
In the Isokyrö Museum can be seen peasant artefacts from the latter half of the 19th century. Everyday utensils are displayed as if the people of the house had just gone to their work outside and left the house for the day. The visitor rather steps into a genuine 19th century milieu than an exhibition.
The museum is characterized by two traditional 1½-storey Ostrobothnian houses. They are grouped with the outbuildings in a way typical for a traditional courtyard. The main building, the Piuhola house, dates back to 1768 and has been moved to the area from the Kuivila village. The buildings represent the building traditions of the 18th and 19th century. The artefacts in the museum also originate from that period.

Isokyrö War Museum
In the Isokyrö War Museum are displayed objects and stories from all the wars waged by Finland. The specialty of the museum is the cannon park, where there are nine different kinds of cannons on view.
In the War Museum one can with the help of items and guidance get acquainted with the Gudgel War (a peasant uprising in the kingdom of Sweden in the part that is now Finland), the Hakkapeliittas (Finnish light cavalryman), the Carolinians, the Finnish War in 1808-1809, the First World War, the Civil War in 1918, and the Second World War in 1939-1945. In the vitrines are exposed soldiers’ uniforms and helmets, rifles and other equipment. One can see in the museum men’s attires from the period of the Gudgel War, a file soldier with his wife, an ensign’s uniform from the year 1918, a festive uniform of a lieutenant colonel and the uniform belonging to a member of the Lotta Svärd organization during the Second World War.
One of the museum’s pearls is a park with nine different kinds of modern era cannons. Here you can see for example an infantry cannon dating back to 1936, a field cannon dating back to 1938 and other cannons from Russia, Finland, Switzerland and Sweden. A Russian horse-drawn field cannon from the year 1902 is one of the oldest weapons in the park. The cannons are no longer in working order, as they have been defused.
