  • I have studied arctic social-cult.anthropology, so for me this museum was very interesting place, there was so much information that it almost exhausted us. We did'nt know anything about this museum, but the Jakobstad's turist information had advertisments about it. It was very very impressing!
  • One of the interesting hidden treasures of Finland. The different buildings and scenes are well worth seeing. Museum it self is interesting but could use some elimination. Now it's in many places a "pile of all the items we have" and a cafe would definitely be in order. I mean self service ice cream is ok, but would have gladly paid for some sandwiches or some such after a long visit.
  • Great place
  • Thoroughly enjoyed this exhibit of how several Arctic peoples live, and also Finish history, including the Winter War. Knowledge docents, some of which speak English. Structures were built by volunteers, started by one man whom has visited Northern Greenland 5 times.
  • What a special museum! It was time well spent at Nanoq. I was lucky enough the employees were very thoughtful and guided me in English around the property. There are so many unique spiritual, cultural and historical artifacts in this tucked away treasure of a museum. I loved how the staff actually explained the stories behind the creator Pentti Kronqvist. There was rich history inside of this museum. Ask to see the little houses around the property while you are there. The church even holds weddings inside of it. There is one room with paintings that is worth viewing. Pictures to be posted later.
