Siida is your guide to Smi culture and the diverse nature of Northern Lapland.

The Smi Museum and Nature Center Siida is located in the village of Inari. The Smi Museum and the Northern Lapland Nature Center are responsible for Siida's operations. Our exhibitions and events serve as guides to the north: we guide our guests to the ancient and living Sami culture and arctic nature.

Siida's new exhibition is called "Enmeh l mii prnh - These countries are our children" based on the Inari Smi poem written by Matti Morottaja from Inari. The name of the exhibition summarizes the most important messages of nature and culture topics.

The cultural contents of the exhibition reflect on how the past lives in us - each of us has a diverse heritage from different eras, which helps us adapt to the changes around us. The nature perspective brings out especially the climate history after the last ice age, and we also consider what will happen to the climate in the future. Nature topics are discussed through the protected areas of North Lapland and the different habitat types and species that occur in them.

Smi Museum Siida's outdoor museum presents the cultural heritage, architectural heritage and livelihoods of the Smi people of Finland. The heart of the outdoor museum is Tirro's courtyard, which represents Inari's Taloll Sami construction and lifestyle from the 19th century. A visit to the outdoor museum is included in the price of the entrance ticket all year round.

Temporary exhibitions with Sami culture and nature themes.
