“Family Museum”

Family playroom is a unique space, where the whole family can enjoy time to good purpose. One can play with replicas of Karelians and Finns household items and traditional toys, try on their national costumes, and take part in interactive classes conducted by skillful educators. It is a miraculous place made interesting for kids and their parents.

The space of the Family room comprises two zones: one reconstructs a Karelian forest site and tells about the biodiversity of our nature; the other presents a village wooden house and discloses way of life, habits and traditions of the peoples that inhabit Karelia. The interiors include musical instruments, toys, cookware, national costumes and retro-style jewelry.

Another peculiarity of the project: you may touch all the objects and materials and play with them without guidance. Family playroom is friendly to people with limited physical and mental abilities.

We request to have indoor shoes with to enter the family playroom.
