Description

The North Karelia Museum exhibits the history and culture of Karelia on both sides of the present day border (= Finnish and Russian).

The collections of the North Karelian Museum mainly consist of objects and pictures related to life in the Karelia area. A historically interesting and important part of North Karelian museum objects have come from the region of Ladoga Karelia. After the Second World War these collections became part of the North Karelian Museum’s collections.
