  • Very thorough, attentive to detail and respectful to the history museum, which can be called "all about wood. ATTENTION! If you are not very good with English and really bad Finnish, take on the rack next to the cashier booklet containing the texts of all Russians accompanying plates! Box of these booklets is a little on the side and it is easy to overlook. Then this booklet to get back in place! Per cent of the 70% of the pleasure of visiting the Museum gives an acquaintance with interesting and very detailed information, so that, having lost it, you just walk and look at the pictures and effigies. From exhibits impressive large landscaped layout, which shows the entire scheme of lesosplavnyh works, a giant machine for digging ditches (the original, not a copy!), "room of silence", where a giant panoramic walls you can sit and enjoy nature. At the exit you can buy many souvenirs from wood, but the prices are five times more than in ordinary stores. On the territory of the Museum there are Arboretum, but alas, we meet with him did not allow weather.

  • The exhibition on machinery in forestry was interesting. They had, inter alia, a forestry machine that ran on six legs. There were also two simulators. Good posted route that takes you through the different parts of the Finnish forestry history. Everything from floating to how forestry is carried out to the various tools via how art affected by industrialization of forestry.

  • A comprehensive immersion on the wonders of the Finnish forests. They have made me a believer.
  • History of the forest industry well told
  • Pretty good professional museum providing many different points of view to Finnish forests and forestry. Location is a bit hard to reach but the region has very pretty nature and great views.
  • Very nice exhibition and surprisingly interesting. Recommended
  • Great place. But there are twice as much and far more interesting information in finnish than in english.
