Kieppi closed

Kieppi, Kokkola Museum of Natural History has been closed since 29.1.2019 due to a fire. The fire was isolated to the old timbered part of the museum and Armas Järvelä’s butterfly collection, that was displayed there, was immediately evacuated. Veikko Salkio’s Natural History Collection and Viljo Nissinen’s Mineral Collection were displayed in the newer building, that suffered smoke damages. Collections has been moved to be cleaned and stored - examination and conservation of the collections will take several months. Kieppi’s exhibitions will open again after the renovation of the museum’s buildings.
