Siida, your guide to the culture of the Lapland indigenous Sami people and the nature of the arctic wilderness.


Smi Museum and Nature Centre Siida is your guide to Smi culture and northern nature.

Siida is located in the town of Inari, in the Smi Homeland.

The Smi Museum preserves and presents the spiritual and material heritage of the Finnish Smi in its collections and exhibitions. Our exhibitions show how nature and people have adapted to the extreme conditions of the Northern environment side by side. Temporary exhibitions on cultural history, nature and art.

The open-air museum presents typical dwellings of the Smi fishermen and the nomadic Smi, as well as hunting methods and reindeer husbandry.

Siidas new exhibition is called Enmeh l mii prnh – These lands are our children”, according to the Inari Smi poem written by Matti Morottaja from Inari. The name of the exhibition summarizes the most important messages of nature and cultural topics.

The cultural contents of the exhibition reflect on how the past lives in us – each of us has a diverse heritage of different eras, which we utilise when adapting to changes around us. The nature perspective highlights climate history, specifically after the last Ice Age, and also speculates what will happen to the climate in the future. Nature topics are discussed through the conservation areas of Northern Lapland, their different habitat types, and the species living in them.

Smi Museum has regional unit in Sevettijrvi where the Smi Museum maintains the Skolt Smi Heritage House, which is open in summer and autumn.
