Riihisaari Guided Tour in English

Welcome to visit the Riihisaari Museum and its magnificent old museum ships with a guide!

Museon opas kertoo takana kelluvista museohöyrylaivoista. Edessä yleisöä.

Our exhibition tour introduces life on Lake Saimaa throughout the ages. How did people move around on the waterways? You’ll also get to meet the Saimaa Ringed Seal.

We’ll explore history of our museum steamships as well. Our shipboard tour takes a look for example at the 150-year-old steam schooner Salama and her story. Salama sank in 1898 and spent over 70 years at the bottom of Lake Saimaa.
