Encounters on the Border

The museum’s permanent exhibition Encounters on the border tells about the history of The Tornio Valley on both sides of the river.

The first part of the exhibition, Our Common Tornio Valley, shows what archaeology can tell about life hundreds and thousands of years ago, presents the traditional ways of making a living in the area and tells about the different wars that have affected Torne Valley. History and stories come alive through interesting artifacts, photos, sounds and films. The vicinity of the border affects the lives of the people and this is seen even in the exhibition. In the exhibition one can even get acquainted with themes that are still present in everyday life: food culture, rock music, local identity, languages and dialects.

The second part of the exhibition, called Our Cities on the Border, tells the history of the cities of Tornio and Haparanda and how it has been to live in these cities. Even local industries and special local phenomena are presented, such as smuggling, marriages over the border and tourism.
