The Juva Karelian Museum

The Juva Karelian Museum

The Juva Karelian Museum features a large collection of items Karelian migrants brought with them from their former home region.

The Juva Karelian Museum is in Partala manor’s common hall, in The Juva Museum’s courtyard. The Juva Karelian Museum opened for the first time in 1980.

Karelians migrated to Juva from almost every parish which are now on the other side of the Finnish-Russian border, but most of the people moved from Rautjärvi. Consequently, most of the museum’s artefacts are from the parish of Rautjärvi. The exhibit displays for example furniture and items related to crop and livestock farming. The museum also houses a noticeable collection of textiles.

Partala museum area can be visited in summertime. Visits for groups can also be organized outside of the open season.

4 € adults
2 € students, pensioners, and children
