Mustio Manor is one of the most precious manor houses in Finland with a history of more than two hundred years.


The Manor is situated about 80km west of Helsinki along the Finnish coast, in western Uusimaa in the County of Raseborg in a small village named Svartå in Swedish or Mustio in Finnish.

Today the manor is a museum open to the public, complete with guided tours in many languages. The museum can only be visited with the guide during the guided tours.

A brief telephone guide is available for visitors outside of the manor.


Mustion Linna sijaitsee pienen Mustion kylän vieressä Länsi-Uudellamaalla.


The manor was built between 1783 and 1792 by Magnus Linder II. The manor house is the largest non-ecclesiastic wooden buildings in Finland. The architecture is a mix of the two styles, rococo and neo-classicism, while the Gustavian style dominates the interior.

There are many special features in the main building including the parquet floors, including one rare floor that it is made from four kinds of wood. On the second floor there is a unique bedroom where Gustav III  and two emperors Alexander I and Alexander II of Russia might have slept.

The most glorious time in Svartå Manor was during the ownership of Hjalmar Linder in the early years of the 1900's. Altogether he owned 64 000 hectares of land and one of the first cars in Finland, which he brought here in 1902. Others famous visitors to Svartå Manor where the Swedish painter Louis Sparre and the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.

The museum in the Svartå Manor shows the long history of the place

The wooden Svartå Manor is nestled in one of the biggest private historical parks in Finland.

The park was originally designed as a baroque park in 1787 but in the late 19th century Fridolf Linder renewed the park into an English style of park. He planted many exotic trees from all over the world, which are unusual species in Finland.

The park is now a welcome retreat for the soul with its winding paths, romantic bridges, statues, follies and a water lily path over the water.

The park and the castle are situated close to the old picturesque village of Svartå, which was an iron foundry village from the late 16th century. Many traditional red and yellow houses are left from the times of the ironworks.


Svartå Manor is one of the most precious manor houses in Finland with a history of more than two hundred years.

Mustio manor is maintained through business profit:

Magnus Linder bought back his childhood home and started the business 1985. Mustio manor is owned by the Linder family. The manor house has been run by a foundation since Magnus Linder's death and is under the supervision of the Finnish National Board of Antiquities.

The owners do not take out any profit from the business but preserve the historically important area for the public and the coming generations according to Magnus Linders wishes. Any profit is used to maintain, restore, and develop the area and buildings.

Thus, we want to thank all our guests! By visiting Mustio Manor and using our services you contribute to help us preserve this important historical cultural heritage for coming generations.
