The Frontier Guard Museum located at the eastern end of the Raate road at Suomussalmi is restored to its state of 1939. It tells us of the life of a frontier guard post before the Second World War. This building is the only one of the guard houses built before the WW II by the independent state of Finland which is left. The Frontier Guard Museum was founded in summer 1988.

Raatteen Portti Winter War Exhibition is located on the western end of Raate road, about 18 km from the Frontier Guard Museum.
