The peat museum of Aitoneva (Kihniö, Cultural and natural sites)

A russian mire tractor

The peat museum of Aitoneva exhibits the history of industrial-scale peat production in Finland. Utilizing peat for energy started during the Second World War here at Aitoneva, and many processes and procedures used in the production of peat were first tested here. This also includes some not so successful methods, including the use of heavy Russian machinery. The machine exhibition is open year-round, and the indoor exhibition is open in the summertime.
