Arctic dreams

17.04. - 27.10.2019

The Arctic Dreams exhibition introduces the audience to travelling to and architecture in the Finnish North from the 1930s to the 1950s. Looking at the hotels and inns in Lapland, we get an idea of the development of Finnish tourism but also of the international and national influence that affected the character of the country of growth.

The exhibition has been produced by the Museum of Finnish Architecture and curated by Harri Hautajärvi. It is displayed in Siida as a joint exhibition of the Sámi Museum and Metsähallitus.
