The Story of the Lotta – Always Demand the Most from Yourself

 The Museum’s main exhibition The Story of the Lotta – Always Demand the Most from Yourself is an experientially focused exhibit based on the personal experiences of Lottas. Visitors are taken along on a Lotta posting across the country guided by the stories of Lottas who served in medical and headquarters duties. Produced with multimedia technique this story of the Lotta is combined with photographs of an album that were taken on the same posting. Together, these two narratives – the original voice and the photographs – form the unique and moving story of the Lotta.

Original photo albums of the front-line postings of Lottas or the everyday work of Lottas in veterinary duties can be browsed in the new exhibition with touch-screen displays. Modern technology also provides a unique presentation of Lotta Svärd activities in a whole city (Iisalmi). There are games for children on the touch-screen displays.
