Northern Ways

What is life like in the world’s northernmost regions?

Finland’s northernmost and largest province, Lapland has been home to permanent settlements and a broad network of northern peoples for thousands of years. Lapland has always attracted visitors, each of whom has left their mark there in one way or another. The Regional Museum of Lapland includes exhibitions that illustrate the history of Lapland, its cultures, nature, and other contemporary themes.

In this permanent exhibition you will see and hear the stories of the people and personalities that have had great influence in Lapland. Also on display, is a thorough presentation of information about the animals and nature, as well as an overview of the stages of Lapland’s history from ancient times until present day. The exhibition is divided regionally into three parts: Rovaniemi, Southern Lapland and Upper Lapland. Familiarize yourself with Rovaniemi’s markets, the Lapland War, occupations and livelihoods in the north, unique natural characteristics, reindeer herding, as well as the Sámi people and the Petsamo region.
