The first Finnish shoe factory began manufacturing shoes in Korkeakoski in 1897. The factory was known for its military boots and clogs, among other products. The building nowadays houses the Shoe and Leather Museum, with old machines, tools and over a thousand pairs of shoes telling stories about shoe fashion and shoe manufacturing over a hundred years. The premises also feature an art gallery. Both are open 2 June–12 August 2018 noon to 6 p.m. Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. The museum is part of the historic Korkeakoski factory area next to the unique Juupajoki ravine. • JUUPAJOKI
