The Siida building that opened in 1998 will be renovated and expanded, with the new parts housing the Sámi Museum Collections Unit and the restaurant. The joint permanent exhibition of the Sámi Museum and Northern Lapland Nature Centre will be renewed. We will remain open throughout the renewal. The larger, renovated Siida and the new exhibition will open in April 2022.
Located in Inari, Siida houses the Sámi Museum and Northern Lapland Nature Centre as well as Restaurant Sarrit. The Sámi Museum Foundation is responsible for operations at the Sámi Museum. The Northern Lapland Nature Centre is part of Metsähallitus’ national network of nature centres.
