Palsa museum

The cottage like home and the Getsemane studio of artist Kalervo Palsa (1947-1987). Palsa's art has been described as fantastic realism. Museum open June to September.

Located in the centre of Kittilä, the Palsa Museum, which consists of the home of artist Kalervo Palsa (1947-1987) and the Getsemane studio, was opened to the public on 6 June 2013. Kalervo Palsa’s home has been uninhabited since the artist’s death and it had gone into disrepair. The foundation of Kauko Sorjonen acquired the Palsa farm in 2011 and last year the buildings were restored and the paintings on the studio’s walls were conserved. The restoration was done by restoration master Taisto Vesa and his team. Liisa Hänninen-Pelz was responsible for the conservation of the art. The museum interior was constructed from objects of Kalevero Palsa by researcher and Master of Arts Anne Koskamo in partnership with the previous museum director of the Särestöniemi Museum, Liisa Tervahauta.

Summer, from the beginning of June to the end of September, Tuesday-Saturday. Closed on Midsummer’s Eve and Midsummer’s Day.
