About
The Särestöniemi Museum environment consists of several buildings, of which the most important are the Särestöniemi family farm and Reidar Särestöniemi's studio and gallery. Old and new mix and match in the museum area. The Särestöniemi farm from the 19th century represents the traditional way of building in the North of Finland, whereas the gallery and studio, both designed in the 1970's by the acclaimed Finnish architects Reima and Raili Pietilä, join the tradition of modern Finnish architecture and its ideal of harmony with the surrounding environment. The personality of Reidar Särestöniemi has been used as the starting point for the newer buildings in the Särestöniemi area. The studio, where the artist both lived and worked, was preceded by an earlier studio that was destroyed by a fire in 1977. The foundations of this old studio can be seen in the museum area.

This is a museum of a well-known finnish artist, Reidar Särestöniemi. I adore his paintings, that's usually the reason to visit a museum=)) but unfortunately there are not so many paintings...That's really weird. But nevertheless the place is big and interesting, u can see where and how he lived and worked. Attention! On the territory of the museum u walk mostly along forest trails, a bit rocky, so sometimes it's really difficult to move with a stroller and I reccomend aged people to have some assistance. I'm also not sure it is really accessible for disabled persons.

He was a controversial figure in Kittilä and also one of the few artists who could enjoy financial success,too, during their life time. There is the birth house and also two toher gallery buildings on of whis is designed by Reima and Raili Pietiä - a world famous architect couple. His paintings create the world class atmosphere here in "the middle of nothing" and the artistic bed for the dog was also very impressive - as well as the large swimming pool! One of the galleries has burned down but still the site leaves you wondering for a long time about life in general.....
