Tornionlaakson Maakuntamuseo

Lonely Planet review

The local historical museum has a collection of interesting old artefacts and costumes, although all displays are labelled in Finnish. Temporary exhibitions spice it up in summer. Entry is valid for the art museum (and vice versa) if you go on the same day.

Across the border in Haparanda, the huge brick water tower built in 1919 is visible for miles around.
