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.
