Visit Siida – Sámi museum and Nature Centre

Tickets to Siida’s exhibitions include entrance to the exhibitions of Siida and, in the summer season, to the open-air museum.

The exhibitions of Siida deal with the history and culture of the Sámi and nature in the northernmost Lapland. The high-quality permanent exhibitions are complemented by interesting changing exhibitions. The exhibition services of Siida are jointly provided by the Sámi Museum and Metsähallitus. The introductory exhibition presents the development of northern nature and culture as a timeline, which is also interlaced with world history.

In the main exhibition of Siida, the sections dealing with nature in Northern Lapland and Sámi culture are placed one within the other. The exhibition focuses on survival strategies in the extreme conditions of the north and the demands of the cycle of seasons. In the open-air museum, which is open in summer, the visitor can get acquainted with a range of Sámi dwellings and hunting and fishing methods.
