The Suur-Savo Museum

Mikkeli, Finland

The Suur-Savo Museum is located to a stone granary that was built in 1848 to serve as the parish of Mikkeli’s municipal granary. The building has been used as a museum since 1960. The permanent exhibition of the Suur-Savo Museum contains items from the peasant culture in Southern Savo and artefacts that depict the history of the city of Mikkeli.

the goods on display quite a lot of the presentation could be a clearer part of the goods it seems almost that we would have thrown but into something without any idea in this museum three floors upper floors quite dim and stale better lighting and display could improve the look of the museum Exercise for the disabled impossible to get up there is no lift Mediocre experience as a whole Only the downstairs functional upper layers are quite vague For example, on the top floor a lot of stuff on the floor and lighting lousy boards and the smallest items keep almost a flashlight with a look that sees properly ... An old bike though is a great private point in the middle of the room on this top floor

It looked like an exterior but quite small inside. On the first floor a temporary exhibition and on the other two floors a fixed one. Not terribly artefacts. Tin pots and other dishes. Old accessory and sword for sale. I wouldn't go a second time.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
