The Museum of Northern Ostrobothnia is a provincial history museum, founded in 1896, located in a park in the city of Oulu, Finland. In 1929, a fire broke out, as a result of which the wooden villa, which housed the museum, burned down, and with it some of the museum exhibits. By 1931, the construction of a new stone museum building was completed, designed by Oiva Kallio.
The main exposition occupies four floors of the building, with a total area of 1100 sq. m. On the ground floor of the museum, children's and seasonal exhibitions are held. The children's exhibitions are based on the works of the children's writer - Mauri Kunnas. On the ground floor of the building, there is a large-scale model of the pre-war center of Oulu. The main exhibitions are located on other floors. The entire exposition is divided thematically, the history of the region is illuminated from different points of view: prehistoric period, peasant life, church, industry, culture.
