  • 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.
