Anu Pentik Gallery
The Gallery’s facade features a stunning, eight-metre high and twenty-metre wide ceramic installation. Created very much in the ethos of recycling, the piece makes use of scraps of ceramic broken during production.
The Pentik Home Museum was first established in 1973 as the home of Anu and Topi Pentikäinen. The company’s ceramics production, store and café all operated in the same premises that were the precursor to what has now become the Pentik Centre. At the Pentik-mäki you´ll also find the Countryside Memories and International Coffee Cup Museums and The Old Ceramics exhibition.
The café on The Pentik Hill offers sweet pastries and salty delights. A great place to stop during shopping and gallery visit to enjoy a salty pie, salad or freshly baked buns.
The café has 50 seats and the summer terrace has 40 seats.
Due to Covid-19 shutdown, our café will be operating only as take away 8.-28.3.2021. We thank you for your understanding!
