The history of Leppävirta resides in the Local Museum
The local museum is located right next to the church of Leppävirta. The former granary of Leppävirta was transformed into a museum at the end of the 1950s. The museum was opened in 1962, and thus in 2012 the museum celebrated it's 50th birthday. In celebration of this the entire exhibition was renovated. The museum offers about 3000 items and about 7000 photographs that depict the history, industry and culture of the Leppävirta region all the way from the Stone Age to modern days.
Guided tours are organized based on reservations, for more information contact:
