  • Incredibly neat museum! Tons of interesting information about culture, climate, geology, history, you name it! Exhibits were all fascinating and well put together. The staff is very friendly, and the gift shop was nice. The architecture is top-notch too. If you're in the area, this is a must-see
  • Ten minute walk from the Shopping Center. A very nice museum all about Polar Climate. Best to spend up to two hours for everything inside. Just outside, a park with a view of the Frozen River. Next door is the science museum You can buy a ticket good for 3 museums at much cheaper price.
  • Great deal of knowledge on the arctics, its history in an animated way. Great for children and adults to find out more about everything on arctic lifestyle. Definetely worth visiting.
  • I LOVE this museum. When i was a child this was one of my favorite place in rovaniemi. Its definitely a place to go!
  • The Artik museums offers a good understanding of the culture, nature and history of Finland. The exhibitions are a bit old but make the purpose of explaining. Don’t get too excited no more than the photografic, ludicrous and waxed animal exhibition.
