  • Very interesting overview of Lapland culture, history and wildlife. Well laid out, in a spacious modern building, some areas child-orientated. Well worth a visit. Captions in English.
  • Great way to spend a polar night or even otherwise. One gets to learn so much about the flora and fauna of the Arctic in addition to seeing the way of life of the people who live in some of the harshest conditions and psychologically toughest periods with no sunlight for months. The museum can be well covered in 2 hours - of course there's always room for more time.
