Only a few Finnish manors have as rich a history as this one, now a museum. The items in the exhibition date from the early nineteenth century, when the manor was inhabited by Admiral Carl-Olof Cronstedt. The main building was originally built in 1752 to function as a factory, until it was refurbished to become a home in 1815-1820. The manor's Baroque-style park and gardens are interesting as well. The English-style garden contains two bowers designed by architect Carl Ludvig Engel. The museum also includes Knusbacka farm, moved into the area from Sipoo. Herttoniemi manor has become familiar to Finns from many classic Finnish films shot here. The museum has a café and a restaurant.
