Apart from the museum being boiling hot inside, it was a lovely visit. Nice exhibitions and easy to walk through at a pace. The gift shop is also pretty nice.

Very interesting overview of Lapland culture, history and wildlife. Well laid out, in a spacious modern building, some areas child-orientated. Well worth a visit. Captions in English.
Great historical information on the Arctic region and Finland in the exhibitions. Very informative exhibition on climate change and impact it's having on the Arctic region. Good coffee in the café.
Great way to spend a polar night or even otherwise. One gets to learn so much about the flora and fauna of the Arctic in addition to seeing the way of life of the people who live in some of the harshest conditions and psychologically toughest periods with no sunlight for months. The museum can be well covered in 2 hours - of course there's always room for more time.
Informative museum containing information regarding Petsamo, Same culture and history as well as wildlife. Can be very hot during summer
Cool museum for history and natural history. Just about everything is available in a variety of languages. Wish we had put aside more time to spend here.
