Pieksämäen Nukkekoti (”Pieksämäki Doll’s House) is a beautiful old house which has served as a house of culture for children since the 1980s. The house was built in the 1920s and 30s and its garden invites children to various activities.

The house has a theatre, a café and toilets on the ground floor and a play area, costumes and other equipment for role play as well as three attics for playing upstairs.
