A very lively exhibition about Finnish forests, woods and trees - and living of them and living in them. If you want to understand why Finns are what they are and how they became to be such then you should visit this museum.

Great architecture, nature and history of Finland. The building it self is worth a visit.The exhibitions are educational and give a taste of forresting through the years. The part with the big machines is pretty cool. Take at least two hours to see it all....More

This museum gives you a lot of information on the Finnish forests and forest industry before and after industrialization. The exhibition is very informative and popular among tourists.

Do not miss the opportunity to visit this museum when you are in the Punkaharju district. It´s something special and unique, It´s a tribute to the forest and all it has and had had to offer.

It is worth to visit this museum especially in rainy day. Do try a buffet in the restaurant! It has very traditional and tasty food which is definitely worth a money.

Lusto is big, we spent 2 hours and that was not teally enough, but we got tired. Not all parts of exhibitions are translated to English, but most is, so it works.

Museums have not been favorite place, but Lusto is not a dusty museum. There you can see a part of Finland's history, but also something to do with the children and a very good lunch!

Our hotel owner in Savonlinna suggested we visit this museum and I have to admit that at first we didn't think it sounded that interesting. However, after reading some reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to go for it and we are so glad we did!...More
