History of Porkkala.

The museum’s location has a unique historical significance, having once been part of the Soviet Union during a lease period from 1944 to 1956, known as the Porkkala Parenthesis. Degerö Gård, where the museum is situated, served as the second Soviet border station in the Porkkala area.
