    Prepare a couple of hours!
    If you mean to read all the information they have to offer, prepare to spend all day :) Otherwise, a couple of hours will do but not less! Lots to see and absorb. Also, keep in mind there is a trail outside introducing different trees. For some odd reason there is no mention of that. Tickets 12€ an adult. Free parking.

    Modern museum on forestry and wood industry
    Nice museum at beautiful and convenient location, just next to Lusto train station. Lots of information about history of forestry and wood industry. Something for the whole family. It's quite large, so better to plan 1-2h for a visit.

    A forestry museum, not a forest museum
    A very good museum but please note that it tells mainly about forest industry, not about the forest itself. Worth visiting, though, if you drive by...

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent food and service. Local and seasonal ingredients. Especially the fish and potato portion was tasty. Good value for money.

Technically a good museum with excellent displays, but sadly very one-sided. In 2021 a museum like this really should include displays and information about the effects harvesting has and has had on the diminishing biodiversity of Finnish forests. As such the museum is an example of the tendency to see nature only as a resource to be exploited. Worth a visit but take all you read with a pinch of salt.

This museum shows in a very interesting way the great history of wood in Finland! I got amazed by the uses of wood in this country!

Great place with lots of information on forestry, Finland’s largest industry. Could have spent a lot longer here but we were limited on time. Highly recommend!

This forest museum is very modern and really worthwhile to visit. Objects, stories are organised by themes. Much to see and learn for adults and children.
There is also a good restaurant and museum shop.

You need to allow 2-3 hours for this fascinating museum covering one of the major industries in Finland historically. Equipment, photos and film are all used to support static displays. The Harley Davidson drawn sledge was unexpected. A good option for that possible rainy day in this part of the world,
