INFORMATION

Situated on Highway 6, the South Karelian Motor Museum was founded in 1990 and is owned by the Classic Motor Vehicles of South Karelia Association. The museum is open during the summer months.

The South Karelian Motor Museum will be of great interest to any motoring fan!

 

EXHIBITIONS

The permanent exhibition, which is spread over two floors, features motor vehicles from the 1920s to the 1970s. The upstairs exhibition area houses old cars along with motor cycles.

The ground floor exhibition on the other hand displays the special features of the museum, such as a 1920s Model T Ford, and a car that used to belong to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Nor has the history of motor sport in South Karelia been forgotten: there is also a display devoted to the Imatra Motor Race. The ground floor also houses a collection of children’s pedal cars.
