Visiting Military Museums this summer

Traveling in Finland


As Covid-19 cancelled our trip to Menorca, we've traveled more in our beautiful country this summer. This has given me the opportunity to visit some military related museums (mostly while rest of the family has been doing something else).


Infantry Museum in Mikkeli

Almost every summer we drive past Mikkeli (in Savolax) on our way to my mother's summer place. This time we stopped and stayed overnight.
