“Karelian tradition” is a new exhibition opened in June 2013 on the first floor of the museum. The year 2013 has been declared the Year of Karelian language, and this exhibition project is a part of the events dedicated to this holiday. Exposition is formed entirely from the museum fund’s objects.
A visitor can immerse himself in the atmosphere of Karelian mode of life and history of the Republic. The folk music and songs sounding in the halls create the right mood that helps to understand the inner world of the Karelian people.
