Lapland Forest Museum - a unique museum in Lapland, located on the shores of Lake Sallijarvi, in the open air, among mountains covered with forests. Belongs to the Museum of the Lapland Forest Museum Association.
Forestry traditions, the history of logging and timber rafting along the rivers of Lapland are presented to the visitor's attention. On the territory of the museum there are many buildings, objects of material culture, documents and photographs depicting the colorful and at the same time exhausting work of the Lapland lumberjacks of the first half of the 20th century. In the second half of the century, the timber industry was mechanized, and it became easier to work.
