When there is no snow, almost the entirety of our Open-Air Museum is accessible with a baby pram or by wheelchair. We have one wheelchair and prams that our visitors are welcome to borrow.
Siida’s exhibition rooms are located on the second floor and there is no elevator in the building. There is a ramp to the second floor. Our temporary exhibitions are located behind doors. Siida does not have an induction loop.
In Siida’s exhibitions, unique museum artefacts form a central part of the exhibits of the Sámi Museum, and their maintenance in the best possible state is of primary importance for us as the keepers of Sámi cultural heritage. Pets may carry dust, dirt and pest insects into the facilities. Therefore, guests are not allowed to visit the exhibitions with their pets.
The buildings and the archaeological cultural heritage of the open-air museum of the Sámi Museum forms a unique whole that tells about the settlement of the Sámi Homeland. The area has been protected by the Antiquities Act. Because we want to safeguard the maintenance of the buildings and the ancient monuments of the area, guests are not allowed to visit the open-air museum with their pets.
