In May, we will, at Siida, search for the perfect light, look at pictures of reindeer, celebrate mothers and have an open house to mark the International Museum Day.

On 13 May, it is time to celebrate all mothers again. That day, Restaurant Sarrit will offer a delicious Mother’s Day lunch with coffee and layer cake. We recommend that you make a table reservation in advance. Before Mother’s Day, those with Siida’s Annual Pass will find it worthwhile to drop in at Siida Shop where they can now buy a nice present for mother at a 15% discount. Siida Shop’s bargain campaign for those with an annual pass lasts throughout May, and the 15% price cut applies to almost all the items sold at the shop.

The present changing exhibitions of the Sámi Museum and Northern Lapland Nature Centre Siida – Colours in the North, Light in Time and South of Biobío – are available for the public until late May. Towards the end of May, we will launch two new exhibitions: Reindeer Images by Reijo Raekallio on 18 May and In Search of Perfect Light by photographer Antti Haataja on 25 May. Both exhibitions will be available for the audience until the end of September. The opening of In Search of Perfect Light will be held on 24 May. It will start with a nature night led by nature photographer Antti Haataja, after which we will acquaint ourselves with Haataja’s exhibition.

The International Museum Day will be celebrated on 18 May for the 35th time. The purpose of the day is to get the public more interested in museums and to raise their awareness of the work museums do.  At Siida, the day is marked by an open house day. At the same time, we will celebrate the founding day of Metsähallitus, which is officially on 13 May, on Flower’s Day.

The Sámi Museum and Nature Centre Siida is open in May through Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information is available at Siida’s Customer Service at siida@samimuseum.fi, tel. +358 (0)400 898 212.
