Current Exhibitions

The permanent exhibition called Encounters on the Border showcases Tornio Valley culture and history on both sides of the Finnish-Swedish border. The second part of the permanent exhibition, called Our Cities on the Border, tells the history of the cities of Tornio and Haparanda. There is also 4-5 shorter term exhibitions per year. They focus on current phenomena and the history of the area.



Advent Calendar
20/11/2020 – 6/1/2021

We gathered an enormous Advent Calendar on the window of the Torne Valley Museum.

How do you prepare for Christmas? In Torne Valley Museums Advent Calendar elves prepare for Christmas and we also present some favourite Christmas presents from the past. You can see the Advent Calendar on the window of the Torne Valley Museum until 6th January 2021.

We open new doors during December as we wait for the Christmas. We announce the new doors beforehand in our Instagram @Tornionlaaksonmuseo and Facebook pages Tornionlaakson museo – Tornedalens museum.

You can see our Advent Calender outside the museum at all times, but best when it’s dark out. Take a nice evening walk outside the Torne Valley Museum!
