Place with a great history, and wonderful coffee

We visited this historic location of Lotta Svard museum and cafeteria. The Lotta Museum is a professionally run specialist museum that records and documents the history of the Lotta Svärd organization and studies the volunteer work of women as part of the history of Finland. The Museum is maintained by the Lotta Svärd Foundation and it was opened to the public in 1996.
Visitors are taken along on a Lotta posting across the country guided by the stories of Lottas who served in medical and headquarters duties during the war years. Produced with multimedia technique this story of the Lotta is combined with the photographs of an album that were taken on the same posting. Together, these two narratives – the original voice and the photographs – form the unique and moving story of the Lotta.
Besides that, there's the Lotta Cafe, which has tasty coffee and Finnish specialities, pastries, sugar doughnuts and baked rolls. When you visit Southern Finland, remember to visit the historic Lotta Museum, too.

We had a lecture booked for our visit, and this was very educational. The guide gave a thorough presentation of the Lotta organisation’s history, and with this in mind our walk through the museum got a lot more interesting. What a group of women this was! We ended our stay with a visit in the museum cafe.

We learnt a great deal about the major work done by Finnish women in social care and wartime auxiliary capacities in 20th century. Well explained story of the Lotta Svard movement and its national and international significance. Well worth a visit. Good English translations of all details (apart from video/audio). Very good café with great range of cakes!

Well worth a visit,woman's roles in the Lotta organisation in the wars
Mar 2017 • Friends
Visited with a Finnish friend.It is a beautiful setting on Lake Tuusala but you will need transport.Beautifully laid out museum showing the work done by woman during the wars It was laid out along the lines of a military service and really combined the work of the UK Land Army,Red Cross,WRVS alongside Nursing,Childcare,Sewing Clothing,and Catering with Fire Watch and Plane Spotting for bombing raids.
Well documented, in English too and the staff are very helpful.
Great cafe ,enjoyed lunch and they have cakes and Pastries too and a small gift shop.
Beautifully clean, mobility friendly.
The scenery and the lake itself are well worth a visit.
