The Riuttala farm was first mentioned in a map of 1650 and it was a big farm with a lot of workers, almost a village of it's own. With 20 buildings, this museum area has a lot to offer. They have everything from a cowhouse to a smokesauna to a blacksmith's to a windmill not to mention old machinery, parafernalia, household utensils, etc. We saw there also horses, sheep and rabbits. You should reserve enough time to explore in order to get the most out of it.
There's also a cafeteria and a small gift shop in a modern but old looking building where they aso sell the tickets.
The museum is located on a lake side about 45 km to the west of Kuopio so you need a car to get there. And I don't think there's public transportation. It is actually in the outskirts of the municipality of Karttula; find road number 5542 (a gravel road) and just follow the signs saying Riuttalan talomuseo.
Valkeinen is a small pond near the center of Kuopio and they have a nice shore park with a lot of roses and other flowers. Nice benches, a gazebo, and a swim strand, too. Go for a walk around the pond. Address: Valkeisenkatu (for instance) is a good starting point.
