Welcome to Archipelago Centre Korpoström!
a visitor center for science, nature, art and culture.
The Archipelago center works in an interdisciplinary manner to create exhibitions and happenings with interesting angles of approach on matters and phenomena that are peculiar to the archipelago. Our center also works as station for marine biology (Åbo Akademi University) and as base for the Archipelago National Park. At the Kids’ Lab our youngest visitors can be introduced to the diverse activities of the centre.
The company Cesa Oy is in charge of the harbor, the hotel the restaurant, our conference services, the grocery store and the petrol station.
