The Finnish Heritage Museum Celebrates Both Culture And A Small Town Near Cleveland

Northeast Ohio is filled with gems. It’s worth venturing outside of Greater Cleveland to see what the area has to offer, as Buckeye State culture certainly seems to change a bit whether you’re near the nautical Lake Erie coast or the peaceful countryside. Today, we’re going to take a trip to Fairport Harbor, a town about half an hour from Cleveland, to explore a small town museum that’s making a big impact. Ohio’s Finnish Heritage Museum is an unexpected find in the community, and its collections are truly a treat to see. Check it out:

Ohio’s Finnish Heritage Museum is an unexpected find in Fairport Harbor, but it proves that hidden gem museums are oftentimes as cool as (if not cooler than, depending on the subject matter) big museums that oftentimes get more attention.

While you’re in Fairport Harbor, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the cutest ghost cat in town. If small-town museums delight you, you’ll have to swing by The Sanctuary Museum in Lakewood, too!
