Kollaa Museum

The exhibitions staged in the Kollaa Museum commemorate the events of World War Two in Finland. The downstairs exhibition has two separate rooms. Geographically, Rautjärvi represents a historical borderland; consequently, an extensive section of the museum is devoted to the history of this area. This room has been furnished in the spirit of patriotism and national defence which dominated teaching in Finnish schools in the early 20th century. The same exhibition area also houses a scale model of the Miettilä Garrison Area as it was in 1881-83.
