Lyytikkälä Farm Museum

Suomenniemi, Finland

Lyytikkälä is a Southeast Finnish farming estate that has been in the same family for more than 250 years. Owing to this, the buildings, structures and the interior of the farmhouse have largely remained unaltered. Most of 20 buildings were built between the end of 18th century and the beginning of 20th century. Lyytikkälä is therefore a valuable historic example of the lifestyle and working environment of the common people.

Ethnological films were already shot at Lyytikkälä in the 1960s. Three films on life and traditional farm work at Suomenniemi were prepared in 1962 and 1963.

At present, the care and maintenance of the Lyytikkälä farmhouse are jointly managed by the National Board of Antiquities and the Lyytikkälä farm trust. Today the museum is open in summer season.

Hieno pala historiaa, jossa pääsee tutustumaan elämään 1700-luvulla ja sukuun, joka paikan aikoinaan omisti. Lisäksi on mahdollista tutustua sen aikaiseen hirsirakentamisperinteeseen ja nähdä jopa pala hirsirakentamisen evoluutiota, kuinka se on vuosisatojen saatossa muuttunut. Opastettu kierros on edullinen ja erittäin kattava. Pyörätuolilla liikkumiseen suositellaan avustajaa, mutta liikkuminen pihapiirissä ja kohteissa on mahdollista.

Oikein mukava paikka muistella entis ajan elämää mukavan emännän kanssa kahvetta juuen ja huiko palaa nauttien olihan siell aika iso tupa n90 neliömeetriä

Erinomainen opastus ja vaikuttava kokonaisuus, vierähti pari tuntia kuin siivillä.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
