The Archives

The Finnish Heritage Agency's Picture Collections, Archaeological Collections and Archive will move to the Collections Centre in Vantaa. The researcher service for Archaeological Collections and Picture Collections ends on June 30th 2023. The customer service of the Finnish Heritage Agency's Archive and Library will continue unchanged for the time being.

The archives of the Finnish Heritage Agency manage archived materials which have been collected over 130 years and which are part of the national cultural heritage of Finland. The archived materials start for the most part from 1884, the year the State Archaeological Commission was established. The archives also include some materials that predate these materials.

The archived materials are mainly related to the cultural environment and heritage, its maintenance and management and related research. The largest collections of materials are related to archaeology, the built environment and ethnology.

The archives of the Finnish Heritage Agency are a part of the Archives and Information Services department of the Finnish Heritage Agency.
