Vilho Lampi Museum is one of the attractions in the Old Liminka museum area. The Vilho Lampi Museum lets visitors admire the works of one of the notable figures of Finnish art history, Liminka-based artist Vilho Lampi. The museum area also comprises the Abraham Ojanperä Home Museum and Liminka Local History Museum.
Painter Vilho Henrik Lampi (1898–1936) is especially well-known for his defiant self-portraits, his powerful depictions of regular people, and his paintings reflecting the landscapes of Liminka and its open surroundings and the Liminka people. The art museum and exhibition showcasing the works of Vilho Lampi was opened in the oldest public-school building in North Finland in 1972. This neo-renaissance inspired building, called the ‘stone school’, was completed in 1869, and was taken into use as a school in autumn 1871.
Vilho Lampi Museum is open in the summer season.
