Artifact Warehouse

For those exploring the local history of Haapajärvi, the Artifact Warehouse is a true treasure trove. It was moved to the museum grounds in 1978 but has been serving as a museum since 1963. The lower floor of the warehouse includes a prehistoric section, a section dedicated to hunters and trappers, a handicraft section, an agriculture section, a carpenter’s cottage, and a rural blacksmith’s workshop.
