  • This museum is located in a beautiful area of Lapland offers several excellent activities: to do. It is worth noting the high quality of the Museum as well as its outdoor exhibitions. First a museum retracing the epic of the gold rush in the region, the living conditions of the gold prospectors of the time (which was very far from easy), the techniques used locally, as well as the techniques used in the world, the presentation of interesting objects that we rarely get to see. All parts of the Museum are presented effectively with pedagogy. Then, the Park makes us discover full-scale Habitat and life of the gold seekers. There are also a few demonstrations, we have seen a blacksmith manufacture craft parts with material of the time. It is also possible to try looking for gold with a pan on the advice of an experienced guide. We had the chance to attend a contest of gold seekers. We have discovered a special atmosphere that we have very much appreciated. In summary, I would highly recommend this activity.
