Siida switches over to winter opening hours

Sep 16, 2015 07:20 AM

The Sámi Museum and Northern Lapland Nature Centre Siida will switch over to winter opening hours on 20 September. In the light of the number of visitors, this summer was clearly better than the earlier ones, and we also expect the winter season to be busy.

In winter, Siida and Restaurant Sarrit are open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Mondays Siida and Sarrit are closed. In the Open-Air Museum, the Tirro farmyard and its buildings can be visited by the public until the end of September during the opening hours of Siida.

With autumn, we will also have new temporary exhibitions in Siida. Very soon – at the end of September – we will launch the Tuõddri Peeʹrel – Pearls from the Tundra exhibition, which will introduce the audience to Skolt Sámi culture through photographs and handicrafts. In October, we will join an Adventure to Siberia by looking at photographs taken by cultural researcher Kai Donner in the 1910s.

The summer of 2015 was clearly better than earlier summers for the Sámi Museum and Nature Centre Siida. The statistics of the busy season will be available by the end of September. In August, Siida had 7,365 visitors who bougth a ticket to the house. In addition to the guests visiting exhibitions, Siida was visited by the customers of Metsähallitus’s licence and hiking information, for example. The total number of visitors to Siida was 18,374 in August.

The winter opening hours will apply until the end of May. In the autumn and the winter, a great selection of events will take place in Siida. In addition to the exhibition openings, the Camera Borealis Nature Photography Event will be held in Siida at the end of November. More information on events in Siida is available in the Calendar of Siida’s website.
