History of local living
Nov 2019
Museum contained exhibition of local living history and industry. Rooms for different centuries. Mostly household stuff. Most interesting part was coin collection. It was nice to visit but I didn't feel that I must visit again soon.

Interesting museum
Jan 2019 • Couples
The museum is located in Ainola Park near the city center in a building from 1931.

The museum tells you the history of the city of Oulu, Northern Ostrobothnia and Finland in an interesting way. There is so much to see.

In August we visited this museum and saw the permanent exhibitions. Now we had time to see only the new exhibitions.

Downstairs was a new exhibition called Kakaravaara (Hill of Children). It was a playful exploration of children's life from the late 19th century to the late 20th century.

Surprising - recommended!
Feb 2019 • Friends
The museum is located in the Ainola park. We did not have high expectations when we entered the museum and were pleasantly surprised by the exhibition. The museum is quite big and the different sections of the museum give you a very good picture of life in Oulu region. Highly recommended. Watch our video on Oulu and the museum at Youtube/Susa and Masa around the world

History of North with many old furnitures and costumes, not only texts which makes exhibition better. Downstairs you will find special Koiramäki village and at the moment seasonal and very nice exhibition of Finnish sport happenings and persons

Good way to pass an hour or two

We visited when weather turned poor. However with three floor in interesting exhibits on trade, shipping, education and a scale model of Oulu from 1938 that you can manoevre around a really good experience. I certainly learned loads about Finland's relationship with Russia and how the first and second world wars affected the locals.

A trip to the history of Oulu
Mar 2015 • Family
Good place to visit if you are interested in the history of Oulu and the Northern Ostrobothnia region. Check also the contemporary exhibitions, they can be anything from bats to the coffee pot cosies.The Doghill exhibition is based on the very popular books written by Finnish author Mauri Kunnas.

Historical museum in beautiful surroundings
Aug 2015
Historical museum that shows you the life at Oulu and its surroundings from pre-historial to 1970's. Also temporary exhibitions at the very bottom floor. Small shop for genuine souveniers, try the products made with tar (soap, shampoo etc.) they have real nature's healing powers!

Museum in the park!
Jun 2014 • Friends
Set in the Ainola Park, the museum is interesting for adults and children - even small ones who will enjoy seeing the ''Dog Town'' displays based on the Mauri Kunnas books. The museum has vintage clothes and displays, and shows the history of Oulu from sea and ships, and the tar production. Nice gift shop to browse through also. Free parking.
