Sámi Museum and Nature Center Siida to be Celebrated on June 1st, 2022

The opening of Sámi Museum and Northern Lapland Nature Center Siida’s new exhibition Enâmeh láá mii párnááh – These lands are our children, will be postponed until the beginning of June 2022.


We will be celebrating the new joint exhibition and the new and improved Siida on the 1st of June, side by side with the beginning of the reindeer herding yearly cycle. By moving the opening, we want to make sure, that our exhibitions are finished with care and thus will serve our guests in the best possible way.

Before the opening of the new exhibition, Siida’s exhibitions are in the Sámi Museum’s open-air museum, and ticket prices are reduced. Also, all guided tours take place in the open-air museum, until the new exhibition has been opened.

Sámi museum’s customer service, ticket sales, Siida Shop, Metsähallitus’ customer service and tourist information will serve in a temporary building on the grounds of Siida, until the end of the renovation and from April 1st onwards in the renewed lobby in Siida.

Restaurant Sarrit serves within Siida’s opening hours.
