The Suodenniemi Local History Museum is located next to a church, in the shade of a windmill in the centre of Suodenniemi. In the museum area, you can find a two-room cottage from the Satakunta region, a windmill, a storehouse, and a drying barn. The museum also displays works of local craftsmen. One of the museum’s more special items is a wooden bike crafted by a Suodenniemi postman named Kalle Pohja. The museum also features an old-fashioned schoolroom.
The museum shop sells local handicrafts. Concerts and other events are held in its spacious yard in the summer. Suodenniemi Church, next to the museum, is a wooden building from 1831 that was designed by architect Andreas Arppe. Its steeple was designed by C.L. Engel. The church was built by master builder Mikko Mikonpoika Roos.
