The Mesikkä Animal Museum

The exhibition in the Mesikkä Animal Museum centers around the relationship between people and nature; the traditions, hunting and the special features of the local flora and fauna.

The Mesikkä Animal Museum’s exhibition showcases the relationship between people and nature: the traditions, hunting and the special features of the local nature.

At the Mesikkä Animal Museum, one can see the most typical animal species of North Karelia and experience the amazing landscapes and the sensual ambient soundscape. The dioramas in the exhibition allow you to familiarise yourself with the swampy landscapes and dry boreal forest with its animals. In addition, at Mesikkä Animal Museum one can learn about folk beliefs, listen to the calls of cranes and be amazed by the size of a bear standing on its two legs.

The Mesikkä Animal Museum caters in particular to children, toddlers as well as school children of different ages. In the depths of a bear cave you can play with our numerous teddy bears and check out our bear books about fairytales and mythical worlds. The divercity of the Mesikkä exhibition supports the curriculum of different school subjects and visiting the exhibition provides new insights into school lessons.
