The Rovaniemi Local Heritage Museum was purchased in 1957. Back then, the museum had four original buildings: the main building built in 1844-45, the barn and two granaries. Fourteen other buildings from the Rovaniemi area have been relocated as museum buildings. The museum at Pöykkölä now forms an estate that holds all the buildings related to local peasant farming.
There are several exhibitions from the Finnhorse and Kirppu - A legendary Finnish Trotting horse born in this estate to the Fishing exhibition.
