The Ostrobothnian Museum is a provincial museum of cultural history, which also serves as provincial art museum and a museum of natural science. The museum building, designed by Eino Forsman in 1927, and the museum’s exhibition wing, planned by architect Erik Kråkström in 1967 are located next to the Marianpuisto park in central Vaasa.
