Description This article discusses how Finland’s museums and their collections are both time- and culture-bound and, as such, reflect society’s evolving values as impacted by historical events. Through the lens of Jyväskylä University Museum’s history, the theory of ‘worker generations’ and museum professionalization are discussed.
