Muonio home region museum
The Homeland Museum has closed its doors for the summer of 2022, many thanks to all visitors!
The Muonio Homeland Museum is located in Emma and Alfred Niva's yard. They built "Emmanpirtin" in its current location after the wars, and many of the objects in the exhibition are the legacy of Emma and her sister.
The main building was built at the end of the 19th century and was originally a two-family apartment. There is a memorial plaque on the outer wall of the main building, which shows the northernmost Jaeger stage road. The granary moved from Ylimuonio dates from the 1850s.
The museum was founded in 1982, when the main building was moved from Kihlang to its current location. The plot also houses a drying barn and a boathouse moved from Kihlang. Although the wars destroyed most of Muonio, current and former Muonio residents have donated so much artefacts to the local museum that the museum was opened to the public in the summer of 1991.
The outbuilding was built before the wars in its current location. It served as an apartment during the reconstruction period. The municipality's granary is from the end of the 19th century, later it served as the municipality's notice board.
