A new exhibition will soon open at the Kurkijoki local history center as part of the InterActive History project. It is devoted to the history of the Ladoga Lake area (its northwestern part), the village of Kurkijoki and Lopotti hillfort.
Prior to installation, the premises of the Kurkijoki center were renovated to host a new exhibition.
The exhibition producers from St.Petersburg have already delivered and installed large modules and exhibits. The exhibition will be completely set up in July.
The InterActive History project is a joint effort of six museums in Russia and Finland to create and introduce new interactive museum services based on research and interpretation of local cultural heritage, interactive principles and historical reconstruction in order to develop local identity and unique culture of the Euregio Karelia region. The project is implemented through the Karelia cross-border cooperation program in the partnership with the Ministry of culture of the Republic of Karelia.
