The Lake Saimaa Nature and Museum Centre is a charming meeting spot and exhibition site next to Olavinlinna castle, in the heart of Old Savonlinna. While the museum building in Riihisaari is temporarily closed due to renovations (estimated to last until the end of 2020), all of the Centre’s services have moved to temporary premises on Nälkälinnanmäki Hill with a fresh new look.
The Lake Saimaa Nature and Museum Centre contains the Savonlinna Regional Museum and exhibitions by Metsähallitus (the Finnish Forest Administration) as well as information on Lake Saimaa’s cultural and natural history. Be sure to visit our museum shop as well!
Thanks to a wide variety of non-permanent exhibitions and public events, we provide new things for our customers and see and do throughout the year. Free entry for minors under 18!
The Lake Saimaa Nature and Museum Centre also contains the Savonlinna region tourist information desk!
