They have two exhibition right now: "Stories of Finnish art" and "To the new rhythm". They also have a concert hall and the first Thursday of each month the entrance to the exhibitions is free (from 6pm to 8pm). If you like art is a good place to be, interesting artists and pieces.

I knew nothing of the exhibitions on here, I just knew I wanted to see the performance space. Sadly nothing was on while I was in Rovaniemi - but I hope to perform there myself in the near future! I went into the exhibitions that were open anyway and was delighted by the photographs and the words written on the... More

Small, but fresh and surprising art museum- walking distance from city center. I loved the Joyce Majiski interpretation of North Myths (temporary exhibition). Unfortunately part of the museum was closed for renewal of the exhibition.

I visited the Korundi House of Culture with a guided tour in August 2016. The art collection is deliberately Lapland focussed and therefore quite landscape dominated but this was not a weakness. I found it actually a surprisingly good and eclectic mix of art that surprised and delighted. The main Reidar Särestöniemi exhibit was worth the entry fee in its... More

This was a great way to spend a morning. The artwork is local and tells stories about the region. Not all of the art appealed to me but a lot of it was quite moving. Plus, there is a "Culture Pass" to visit Korundi, Pilke and Arktikum for one lower fee that it made this visit all the more worthwhile.

A splendid experience. It all starts from the great architecture as the building is pretty stylish. If possible, have look inside the concert hall. The art exhibitions are of higher quality than you would expect in city as small as Rovaniemi. A very enjoyable visit & a nice little shop. It takes only 5 mins walk from the centre -... More

Small museum but great as a rainy day activity. Really enjoyed the exhibit downstairs. The one upstairs gave me creeps... Especially the model of a little girl sitting on a chair with her long black hair in front of her face (The Ring anyone?) immediately when you enter the room - nearly gave me a heart attack! So yes, the... More

Really nice introduction to Lappish culture and history. Very interesting. We had a good guide who happened to be German. Nice displays on the animals. Examples of Sami costumes, and stories of how they live. Well worth a visit.
