Welcome to the childhood home of Zacharias Topelius! Kuddnäs is situated in Nykarleby, Ostrobothnia. With our five preserved buildings, the estate shows how a well-kept home would appear at the beginning of the 1800s. The main exhibit in the white main building shows how the Topelius family lived. The furniture and artifacts tell the story of a well-off life in 1800s Ostrobothnia
The Kuddnäs Museum and Café Emilie is closed for the entirety of 2017 due to restoration and accessibility preparations in anticipation of the 2018, Topelius's 200th-Anniversary Jubilee Year.
You are welcome to take a look at the re-opened museum in the spring of 2018!
