Nilsiä museum

Nilsiä museum welcomes You to an active local museum, situated in Heritage Centre Simola. The Museum is maintained by The Nilsiä Tradition and Culture Association and it preserves, studies and exhibits cultural heritage related to the area.

We have a large permanent exhibition with varied themes including traditional Finnish ethnographical artefacts & textiles, winter sports collection, pre-history, music and many more. We also put up a couple of short-term exhibitions each year.

Visitors are served by the museum café and shop, which are open during museum opening hours.
