We have the pleasure to welcome you to our renewed museum of military history with its wide range of exhibits in an authentic setting. We are much more than a traditional museum, because we are situated precisely on the front line of the Finnish-Soviet Continuation War on Hankoniemi Cape.
Visitors are offered a tangible physical experience related to the historical events of 1939 –1941 that took place precisely here.
We have a completely new permanent exhibition and a hall of artillery pieces on display telling of the strategically important years of 1939 –1941 which included the lease of Hankoniemi Cape to the Soviet Union.
Our new conference room can serve large groups and we can customise the programme of your visit to your specific needs. Our canteen serves many kinds of treats.
Outdoors in the beautiful pine forest setting of the museum there are many exciting things to see and experience. They include the Gyllene Freden dug-out, communication and firing trenches and an obstacle course mainly for our younger visitors.
The so-called War Path is an approximately one-kilometre long walking path along which there are many sites and remains from the war years. A booklet presenting the path can borrowed from the canteen.
We are also worth a visit from further away. This is a calm and relaxing area of natural beauty despite the dramatic history of the region.
And don’t forget to visit the newly restored Irma bunker, also known as Bunker 302. It is a unique attraction open to visitors by appointment.
