Contact information and how to get there
The exhibition space of the Border Museum is located in the Immola barracks in Imatra. Visitors to the museum are also welcome to visit the border guard club which is located in the same building.
The free exhibition is normally open to the public from the beginning of June to the end of August. Because of corona, we are not yet sure if we can open in the summer 2021. We will inform you as soon as we know more.
