Very interesting implementation of the exhibition.
Jul 2021
North Karelian museum Hilma is located in the centre of Joensuu, in an old bank building next to the market square. The museum's permanent exhibition displays the prehistory and the history of Karelia and North Karelia. There are also several temporary exhibitions each year concentrating on various themes, such as local culture and history.

Excellent museum visit
Feb 2018 • Couples
Carelicum is a culture and tourist center situated by the marketplace. The museum visit is an excellent way of getting to know Joensuu and North Karelia and its culture.

There is also ticket sales for concerts and theatre plays and it gives tourist information.

Understanding the surroundings
Oct 2017 • Solo
The Carelicum is an interesting museum for people who want having information about non only Joensuu, but also of the surroundings. Because the area was many times involved in historic dynamics and moved from different sovereingties: Danish, Swedish, Russian, Finnish. There are different rooms along an historic development with maps, photos, documents and also objects and tools of the ordinary life. The entrance is cheap and it's possible to by gadgets and books about Finland.

an unexpected gem
May 2016 • Couples
After an emergency visit to the Joensuu Hospital, we discovered that we had to go elsewhere to pay our bill, so back we came to Joensuu a few days later to pay. We expected an office or some other administrative functional facility, but were surprised to go into this interesting building that seems to have a reception area that handles local billing payments and ticketing. Very efficient I might add. There is also the North Karelia history museum which was absolutely fascinating (most information was in Finnish, Russian and English) and a wonderful little Kahvila-Ravintola "Aino Sofia" serving local Keralian dishes. We enjoyed everything we tried, service was great. We would not have come to Joensuu had I not had a kidney stone, but I am glad we did.

The museum is good if you are interested in history. It gives you the details of Karelia and its people. It should be more interactive.

A true taste of Karelia
Dec 2015 • Couples
Loved the layout and design of the exhibitions. Was nice to see children being able to interact in the Christmas exhibition downstairs and have a temporary photography exhibition too. Really liked the old back lit maps of the world. Gave me a real taste of what has been going in Finland up until present day and I only wish I had more time to digest it all, really did touch on every subject.

Worth a visit!

This is a place for you if you are interested in learning more about Joensuu and the Karelia area all together. The exhibition is rather interesting! The "playground" for children downstairs used to be my favourite when I was a kid, and I still go there from time to time with work or when I'm babysitting and it never disappoints!
