The Bard´s House was built in 1964 to commemorate the bards and the Karelian architecture. The architect of the House was Aulis Kalma. The Bard´s House was he first post-war building to be constructed in the traditional Karelian style in Finland.

Daily in summer you can hear the kantele, a Finnish musical instrument with a very special sound. Guides and musicians dress in the "feresi", a modernised version of folk garments of the past.

During summertime we have theme theme exhibitions in the Bard´s House.
