Cultural Heritage in Pori

English Class third graders and fifth graders visited Cultural Heritage Museum Toivo today to learn about the history of buildings in Pori. Their field trip was a nod to European Heritage Days which are celebrated in Finland, as well as 49 other countries throughout the world.

After listening to a lecture about Pori’s history, 3rd grade and 5th grade pupils were able to build a structure of their own using hand hewn logs. Many of the old buildings throughout town hide logs which are invisible, hidden behind boards and cladding.
