Located in Vuolijoki is the private Riihipiha Museum with its buildings brought to collect, maintain and exhibit the old courtyards of the Kainuu region, exactly as they were before the use of electricity became common. The collection of the 35 numerized buildings and approximately 4000 items in Riihipiha show us what life was like for the earlier generations in Vuolijoki and the Kainuu region.
There is a summer cafe in the Riihipiha surroundings as well as Niittypirtti, a space for events and meetings. Bookings and further information available from Eija Pyrrö, tel. 050 911 7945.
