SIIDA – A Window into Sámi Culture and Arctic Nature

Siida is a central meeting place in Inari, the heart of the Sámi Area in Finland. It is a window on Sámi culture and the diverse nature of Northern Lapland. At Siida, you can acquaint yourself with changing exhibitions on culture, art and nature throughout the year.

Siida offers the visitor both exciting experiences that appeal to many senses and expert knowledge. In the summer season, the indoor exhibitions of Siida are complemented by the cozy open-air museum. In addition to exhibitions, events that focus on culture and nature, as well as seminars, are arranged at Siida.

At Siida, the National Museum of the Finnish Sámi and the Nature Centre of Metsähallitus work together. The pleasant restaurant Sarrit serves customers on the second floor of Siida.

Bures boahtin Siidii! – Welcome to Siida!

”Nature abounds in
plants and animals.
The world is filled with
different languages and cultures.
We Sámi see ourselves
merely as part of this nature.”

Áillohaš, Nils-Aslak Valkeapää (1943-2001)

The word “siida” is North Sámi, and it means a Lapp village or a reindeer village and the neighborhood in it.
