The Story of the Lotta - Always Demand the Most of Yourself

The museum's main exhibition The Story of the Lotta - Always Demand the Most of Yourself is an experiential exhibit based on the personal experiences of Lottas. It tells of the world's once largest volunteer national defence organization, Finland's Lotta Svärd, which began its work as a national organization in 1921. According to its by-laws, it worked to raise the will to defend the country and moral standards and it assisted the Civil Guards organization in defending the faith, the home and the fatherland. During the Second World War, Lottas served in field and military hospitals, hospital trains, evacuation centres for the fallen, veterinary care, provisioning, Lotta canteens, communications, meteorological observation, aerial and marine surveillance and supply duties, among other tasks. The Lotta Svärd organization was discontinued in 1944.

The Lotta Museum in Tuusula is a professionally run museum that documents the history of the Lotta Svärd organization and studies women's volunteer work in the context of Finnish history. The Lotta Museum was opened to the public in 1996. The museum is maintained by the Lotta Svärd Foundation.

The exhibition involves the viewer in the moving story of the Lotta, and its display technologies offer completely new ways to explore and use the museum's collections and visual materials.

Guided visits and museum-educational products provide additional information on the Lottas and a teaching platform for various subjects
