We experience cultural heritage through trying things and doing things in the Virrat Traditional Village. The Traditional Village is a museum which displays the agricultural and forest work traditions. It is a cultural heritage learning environment for the Marttinen youth centre. The aim of the cultural heritage programmes is to help children and young people observe cultural heritage and give them more knowledge about the past as well as life in the bygone days. In the programmes, we learn about history in a practical way and through experience.
We learn about and pass on cultural heritage through interesting activities. Next to Marttinen is the Virrat Traditional Village, which presents the farming and forestry tradition.
We try to start a fire with flint and a drill. How did people start fires in the old days when they didn’t have matches? If we can get the bonfire lit, we grill buns on it.
