Venture out of the city with trips to Vitikkala Manor (in Jamsa), Petajavesi Old Church (in Petajavesi) and Keuruu (Church of Keuruu & Old Church of Keuruu). The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Keski-Suomen museo (Museum of Central Finland), see the interesting displays at The Alvar Aalto Museum, gain insight at The Craft Museum of Finland, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Nyrolan luontopolku.
