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!

Different exhibitions on four Different floors, info about Saame history (could be expanded though). Clothes, items and furniture from different time periods placed in rooms, make the exhibitions more interesting and provide a bigger picture of the local history.
