Where Land and Sea Meet - The History of Hanko through the Museum's Collections
A concise history of Hanko in Finnish, Swedish and English.
Smiles like a Hanko biscuit. Sunny days of summer. Wonderful nature. Lively harbor. Eventful history. All of this can be found in Hanko. There are a lot of books about the history of Hanko, but not an overview. That is why the Museum of Hanko has decided to publish a summary in Finland’s centennial year. The staff at the museum has chosen different themes and then chosen objects and pictures that suit these. We want to with this book put focus on Hanko Museum’s collections of which the majority is in storage. We do not have a permanent exhibition where we could present the events in Hanko through the centuries.
