Opened in 1989, the Border Museum is located in the Immola Barracks. The museum houses a permanent exhibition which traces the history of Finland’s frontiers and that of the Border Guard itself. The exhibition also gives an insight into the life and work of border guards during the period following Finland’s independence (in 1917), in times of both war and peace.

The museum is open in summer, and at other times by prior arrangement.

Museo on ehdottomasti käymisen arvoinen paikka varsinkin sotahistoriasta kiinnostuneille ja miksei kaikille muillekin aiheesta kiinnostuneille. Rajavartiolaitoksen ja rajavartijoiden historia tähän päivään saakka tulee näyttelyssä hyvin esille. Parasta museokierroksella oli oppaan ammattitaitoinen tuntemus ja tietämys asiaansa. Olisin viihtynyt pitempäänkin ja kuunnellut mielelläni lisää tarinoita vuosien varrelta. Suosittelen!

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.
