  • Visit made in April, so we had the Museum for us alone. We did the tour by 2:30, but the visit can be longer bcp if everything works... Lots of fun activities are proposed but unfortunately during our visit, little work... Museum to do to know the history of this magnificent region. Very friendly welcome.

  • This Museum are unique compare with other Museum. The exhibition are very special and to let us more understand about Arctic life and especially northern light. Don't miss it when visiting Rovaniemi.  more »
  • 1 hour and a half at least is understandable Rovaniemi history, customs and culture. And screened the movie in Aurora, Aurora did not look like my man, now with great comfort.

  • Great museum of all things polar and nordic. Beautiful place to visit during the long winter months when Aurora Borealis can be seen from the museum.
  • Slightly aged museum. Bottom floor is nice.
  • very interesting and should've stayed longer.
