Treasures of local history, stories, 
enchantment of the past!

The Rovaniemi Local Heritage Museum was purchased in 1957. Back then, the museum had four original buildings: the main building built in 1840, the barn and two outbuildings. Fourteen other buildings from the Rovaniemi area have been relocated as museum buildings. The museum at Pöykkölä now forms an estate that holds all the buildings related to local peasant farming.

There are several exhibitions from the Finnhorse and Kirppu - A legendary Finnish Trotting horse born in this estate to the Fishing exhibition. 

Each year, Totto organises the following events in the Rovaniemi Local Heritage Museum and grounds. Raising the flag on Midsummer’s Eve, Feast Day of Margaret, Traditional Feast and the Winter Solstice Tree Festival. The latest additions to the annual programme are the Chamber Music events and the open days organised during the Rovaniemi Days.
