The Voipaala Manor in Sääksmäki dates back to the Middle Ages. The present buildings provide beautiful and pleasant premises for art exhibitions and art workshops. The Art Centre arranges exhibitions with selected artists throughout the year. 

Voipaala Art Centre provides courses and field trip facilities for children from local schools and daycare centres, as well as for various other groups. The Voipaala Manor is owned by the city of Valkeakoski.

The manor and the surrounding parks are located on the slopes of the iron-age Rapola ridge. The nearby Rapola Manor and the fort with its ancient burial grounds are under the supervision of the National Board of Antiquities and Historical Monuments. The surroundings offer magnificent walking paths from one historical sight to another.

In Voipaala you can walk around a beautiful baroque park and admire buildings from different eras. In addition to the exhibition and workshop facilities, there are private boutiques in the manor yard area selling interior decoration items and bouquets of flowers and organising flower arranging courses. Also relaxation walks in the ridge area are organised. More private entrepreneurs are expected to start business there in the future.
