Kalajoki Fishing Museum and Fiia's cottage

Kalajoki’s charming Fishing Museum is locatein in Old Town Plassi. The Museum’s main exhibition primarily illustrates the Kalajoki region’s fishing traditions and their integral elements of river and sea fishing, lamprey fishing and seal hunting, and the use of Maakalla and Ulkokalla as a base for the fishing trips.

Further, the museum captures also Siiponjoki river area and Rahja Archipelago in terms of fishing traditions and also the land uplift phenomena, which is typical for this area. The museum also presents its initiator Lauri Tanska and two more of Kalaojoki’s famous fishermen of their time, Piekko Aukko and Kala-Saimi. Downstairs of the museum you can see a seal boat, so called “felpaatti” from Kalajoki with his equipment.

Fiia’s cottage (Fiian mökki) is the only surviving example of modest, low-income housing in Plassi from the first half of the 20th century. The cottage is located by the gate of the old sawmill.

Open 26.6.-31.7. daily 15:00-17:00.
There is no entry fee, but a small donation is gratefully received.
