The main building was originally built in 1752 to function as a factory, until it was refurbished to become a home in 1815-1820. The manor's Baroque-style park and gardens are interesting as well. The English-style garden contains two bowers designed by architect Carl Ludvig Engel. The museum also includes Knusbacka farm, moved into the area from Sipoo.
