60100 Seinjoki

The museum for voluntary national defense operates in a building designed by Alvar Aalto for the South Ostrobothnian Defence Corps and Lotta Svrd organisations.

 

The museum operates in the South Ostrobothnian Defence Corps building in the city centre. The museum buildings, designed by Alvar Aalto, were built in 1924-26. The three-storey house represents classicism, with features of functionalism and Ostrobothnian building heritage.

In 1926, offices of the South Ostrobothnian Defence Corps and the Lotta Svrd organisations operated in the building. Matti Laurila, head of the defence corps district, and his family lived on the top floor of the house.

The main building holds exhibitions about defence corps, the Lotta Svrd ogranisation and jgers, a meeting room, information desk and museum shop. The outbuilding presents an exhibition about Mannerheim and the Seinjoki headquarters.

The Suojeluskuntalainen (member of the defence corps) statue, the work of sculptor Pentti Papinaho, and the Suojeluskuntapoika (boy from the defence corps) and Lotta (member of women's voluntary defence organisation) reliefs are located in the inner yard.
