South Karelia Museum Reviews
Музей расположился в зданиях, где раньше были артиллерийские склады. Строения обращают на себя внимание, выделяясь среди других, материалом для которых послужил красный кирпич, так как построены из ме... more »The museum is located in buildings where there used to be artillery warehouses. Buildings attract attention, standing out among others, the material for which was the red brick, as built from local natural stone. The main exposition of the museum is called "on the Border" and tells about the main periods of the history of Lappeenranta, Viipuri (Vyborg) and Kykisalmi (Priozerska). The fate of these cities largely determined their border situation, as well as the fact that they stood on Crossing major trade routes. Of particular interest in the exposition is the layout of Vyborg as it was in 1939, the area of 24 square meters.

Museossa on kaksi osastoa, toisessa kiertävä näyttely sekä toisessa pysyvä näyttely. Tällä kertaa oli Kalevala-Korun juhlanäyttely, hienosti rakennettu näyttely.

This time it was the Kalevala-Koru celebration exhibition, a finely constructed exhibition. A little more would have gotten to be jewelry.
The museum is located in historical place where old fortress has been located from old times. Museum is small, only two rooms. The exposition in the first room was really interesting and decorated artistically: mythology of South Carelia and northern Siberia. In the second room you can see some items illustrating history of Lappeenranta to our days. Ticket is 8 euro for students.
A permanent introduction to Vyborg was good. But glad to be an all-out tour of Kalevala Koru with interactive devices. A nice playground for children. WCT. Location time at the forefront of the fortress area. In summer, the nature around. Helpful staff.
