The Lake Saimaa Nature and Museum Centre is a charming meeting point 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, all of the Centre’s services have moved to temporary premises on Nälkälinnanmäki Hill. The estimated opening date at Riihisaari is in June 2021.
The Lake Saimaa Nature and Museum Centre hosts 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 to see and do throughout the year. Free entry for minors under 18!
The Lake Saimaa Nature and Museum Centre also provides Savonlinna region tourist information services!
