  • In outdoor Exposition gold can be seen: artisan tools, vintage trolleys, car-sauna, aqueducts, which flowed water for washing the gold dust and miner's monument. In the Museum Exposition consists of several parts-SAMA exhibition, which tells about the history of gold mining in Lapland, and how gold is mined around the world (United States, New Zealand, South Africa, etc.) in Tankavaara each year spend gold washing Championship. The Museum features prizes and photo of champions in different years. Another part of the Museum is a private house, which displays various minerals found in Finland and other countries. Before the entrance stands a cubic metre of gold-bearing sand, and it is under a magnifying glass-a few grains of gold. So clearly show that, on average, M3 sand contains 2 grams of pure gold. You can try gold panning for yourself, but it's long and tedious-simply buy flask with already namytymi grains.

  • From the parking lot, walking through a village of scenery, which at the time of the gold rush is a gold mining town in the United States. Then you will pass a small house made of empty beer bottles. In the outdoor area of the Museum are reconstructed gold rush cabins and wash, you get a glimpse of the hard work of the gold prospectors in the old Finland. The museum itself provides insight into the gold mining around the world, with very beautiful and also informative exhibits. Absolutely worth seeing!
