New permanent exhibition!
‘Road Stories’ is Mobilia’s new permanent exhibition and tells the story of Finnish roads and road travel.
The exhibition travels and grows in time, creating a bridge to insights into the meaning of roads and road travel. Scenery that is so familiar to us now that we don’t even notice it can become fateful just moments later. As the name suggests, the exhibition tells small stories of journeys from the thousand-year history of the Finnish road.
The exhibition aims to give rise to and provide space for insights, experiences, and the meaning of travelling. The goal is to experience meaning, not just lines on a map.
