Local History Museum

The collection of the Local History Museum includes more or less 1150 peasantry items that were used during the years 1850–1940 in Posio.

The Local History Museum of the Posio Municipality is located on the southern shores of Lake Kitkajärvi in the village of Lohiranta - a place worth a visit for its cultural environment and landscapes. The distance from Posio center to the museum is about 40 kilometers.

The grounds of the museum hold the Lohi-Päätalo main building built in 1895 as well as the stables and a small barn that have been relocated in the yard. The main building is decorated in rustic style.
