In the 1700's cattle were grazing on the Harakka Island.
In 1855 during the Crimean War a few houses were built.
1928 a military research institute was built on the island.
1988 the main building was passed to the Culture Centre of the City of Helsinki, which rents out space as workshops to artists of various fields.
The nature on the island is well preserved due to its having been a closed military area. Several rare species of plant occur on the Harakka Island.
The island is located 400 metres from the mainland.
