Northern Ostrobothnia Museum

The Northern Ostrobothnia Museum focuses on the history of the city of Oulu, Northern Ostrobothnia and Finland. Our exhibitions captivate kindergarten groups, teenagers and seniors alike.

In the Northern Ostrobothnia Museum, years gone by come alive in an unforgettable way through objects, phenomena, famous persons and common people. Smell the tar, learn of adventures in the high seas and get to know working-class life in the Vaara district of old. This and much more is what makes the history of our fair city. The eye-catcher of our exhibition is a large miniature of the White City of the North as it was before the Second World War in 1938.

The cultural-historical provincial museum is located in the beautiful river delta of the Oulujoki River. All four floors of the building house exhibitions. Oulu’s cultural cradle is located at the heart of the city in the Ainola Park and the Hupisaaret Islands.
