Saemien Sijte is a South Sámi Museum and Cultural Center in Snåsa in the heart of the southern Sami area.

You don't need to travel further than mid Norway to experience and learn about the Sami culture.

Saemien Sijte is a museum where you can get better aquainted with the south-sami culture and history - past and present. Our guides give you a guided tour around the exhibitions and our Sami courtyard.

Sit in "gamma" (old traditional mud hut) in the yard, practice your lasso skills and immerse yourself in the Sami feeling.

Oral storytelling is very important in the Sami culture, so a guided tour of the museum is highly recommended. There are permanend and temporary exhibitions throughout the year.

The museum shop feature «Duodji» (traditional Sami handicraft), Sami litteratur, music, gift articles and much more.

We welcome visits throughout the year. We recommend to book in advance, especially for groups and school groups. Guided tours are tailored to group size, age, special needs, concerns and desires.

Opening hours:
Tue - Fri: 10 - 16.

Other times by prior agreement.

Adults: 100 NOK / Children under 15 years: Free
Groups are kindly asked to pre-book.
