We did not allow enough time to see all the exhibits! There is lots of information about the local history which is very interesting.

This is a great museum, presenting everything from history and culture to astronomy, geography and lifestyle in the Arctic Circle. The exhibition design is very professional, allowing visitors of all ages to have a lot of experience. I recommend visiting with children.
Such a nice museum! You'll have plenty to see. The museum is full of old fashion interactive information, where kids will love to pull ropes, switch lights and so on. It is a lot to read so it might take some hours. You'll be able to learn about climate change and the future of the Arctic, the history of Finland and populations around Lapland, the Finnish wildlife. Also, if you want to experience typical Finnish food, try the lounas at the café. Much better than the food served to tourists in town.
