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.
