In Päijät-Häme, you can pop into a traditional museum focusing on local culture or history, or visit an art museum or a museum exploring an interesting theme – there are also a couple of manor museums in the region!

The museums in the region are quite versatile. In addition to the Lahti City Museums (i.e. the Lahti City Museums organisation), there are some thirty museums focusing on local culture or a special theme. Most of the museums can be visited during the summer season. In the wintertime, you can visit a museum in Lahti, Hartola, Heinola and Orimattila.

More information on the museums in the region, grouped by municipality, is available below. Information on the museums included in the Lahti City Museums organisation – Ski Museum, Lahti Historical Museum, Radio and TV Museum Mastola and Lahti Museum of Visual Arts Malva – is available on the museums’ own pages.

If you have any questions about the museums in the Päijät-Häme region and museum operations in general, please feel free to contact the Päijät-Häme regional museum.
