The diverse and broad provincial museum of South Ostrobothnia has its centre located in the beautiful Törnävä museum area roughly three kilometres from the centre of Seinäjoki. The museum area is surrounded by the park area of the old Östermyra iron works, and the Seinäjoki river flows nearby. This area is a popular place for events and recreational activities.

Civil Guard and Lotta Svärd museum, which is a part of the provincial museum, is located in the city centre, and Riihimuseo, the drying-barn museum, can be found in Peräseinäjoki, about 30 kilometres from the city centre.

The provincial museum includes the cultural heritage of the area and organises exhibitions, museum education, research and workshop activities. In addition, the museum offers expert assistance in matters related to its field and support in building renovations.
