This museum covers all aspects of trees and forestry in Finland from the history of forestry, tree husbandry, uses of timber to the machines used to harvest it. The exhibits are arranged in a very fluid way with lots of explanatory text in English as well as Finnish. There are lots of hand on exhibits so great for kids (big or small!). I found that the museum gave a good overview of Finnish culture and you certainly do not need to have an existing interest in forestry to get a lot out of a visit. The cafe is great with a lovely balcony. The gift shop is well stocked with lots of Finnish made wooden items and almost no tacky souvenirs! The building which houses the museum is really something too! There is a combined ticket for Lusto and the Retretti gallery and you can borrow a bike to cycle the 2kms or so.
