The Suur-Merijoki manor is the star of an exhibition opening at the Museum of Finnish Architecture in March 2019. It shows visitors the story of the manor and its unique objects: furniture, decorative items, sculptures, architectural plans, and photographs from the collections both of museums in Tampere and elsewhere and of private individuals.

Designed by the Gesellius, Lindgren, Saarinen architectural office, the Suur-Merijoki manor, in the rural area of Vyborg, was a jewel of Art Nouveau architecture and the most public home of its time in Finland.
