  • We visited the Museum with our 2 small girls, is not huge but well laid out. It is ideal for those who go with boys on 8/10 years are able to better understand the various explanations. In spite of our daughters are smaller had fun watching videos or visiting the exhibition "regional". Not to be missed if you are in Rovaniemi 2/3 days at least.

  • Spectacular. Are the facilities for children. The Aurora can be seen on screen. I enjoyed the short time, and then slowly taking the time out and enjoy. Exhibit mainly because doing do not expect further attraction.

  • Great museum with informative history of Sami culture and early Rovaniemi. Also some good information concerning the effects of climate change on the Arctic circle.
  • Very disappointing. Not a lot of information. Some exibits are not in the best shap possible.
  • Lovely museum. Very informative. Cafe has great lunch buffet as well.
  • Good museum to understand global warming
  • Very interesting place. A lot but not too many things exposed about Arctic here. Just enough to find out the most important things about northern pole. Suggested.
