Finland’s northernmost and largest province, Lapland has been home to permanent settlements and a broad network of northern peoples for thousands of years. Lapland has always attracted visitors, each of whom has left their mark there in one way or another. The Regional Museum of Lapland includes exhibitions that illustrate the history of Lapland, its cultures, nature, and other contemporary themes.

Also on display, is a thorough presentation of information about the animals and nature, as well as an overview of the stages of Lapland’s history from ancient times until present day. The exhibition is divided regionally into three parts: Rovaniemi, Southern Lapland and Upper Lapland.
