Lauri Rapala was the founder of Rapala-Normark group, the largest fishing lure and tackle producer in the world. Lauri Rapala was born in this region (in Sysmä). This museum tells the exciting story of Lauri Rapala and Rapala Company. This isn't "only" Rapala museum. It also tells about other lures, fishing as a hobby and local nature. The museum is three storeys high and it is situated in an old dairy building (nowadays called as Päijännetalo House). So it also tells about local history and dairy industry. Remember to visit the statue of Lauri Rapala, too. It is situated 300-400 meters (walking time 4 minutes) from the museum. I am not interested in fishing but this museum was very exciting. I recommend it for everyone interested in nature, fishing or history.
