The permanent exhibition Raseborg through the ages gives a comprehensive view of the history of the city and the local area from ancient times to the present day. 



Helene Schjerfbeck (1862-1946) is one of Finland’s best-known and most appreciated artists.

As Schjerfbeck spent a significant time of her life in Ekenäs, the Provincial Museum of Western Uusimaa has planned a permanent exhibition at the EKTA museum centre, celebrating her life and work. 

The exhibition Helene Schjerfbeck’s life and art shows a selection of her works of art. The selection of art vary and the exhibition never stays the same.
