Kuopio’s city museum, in a castlelike art-nouveau mansion, has wide scope. The top two floors are devoted to cultural history, with household objects, a boat builder’s workshop, coffee shop and a re-created wooden house among the attractions. But the real highlight is the natural history display, with a wide variety of beautifully presented Finnish wildlife, including a mammoth and an ostrich wearing snowboots. The ground floor is devoted to temporary exhibitions.

There’s little information in English, but tours in English are sometimes scheduled during summer.
