South Karelia Museum

The South Karelia Museum is housed in the massive grey stone buildings that were formerly cannon storehouses. These neo-classical buildings stand out from their surroundings as they were built using local stone material, which has a high lime concentration. The buildings were completed in the early 1800s.
