lots of exhibitions, really nice place to visit! Learned about the inhabitants of the artic circle, the animals, the flora, the history...I bought the 20 euros ticket and could visit the three museums with it, but if you've got a student card from any university, you've got the student price.

Our conference was held here and so we got to see the exhibitions for free. I found the exhibits to be really interesting and I learnt a lot. It's well worth a visit if you are in Rovaniemi.

The museum concentrates on the area (Lapland) covering many aspects of the local life, flora, fauna and the famous Aurora Borealis , of course.

We started our tour in Lapland with a visit at the Arktikum. The museum includes some very nice exhibits of the erea, animals and the Sami people. There is a nice movie about the northern lights and a lot of interesting information. we liked it!

Had some nice little exhibits, but I didn't really love it. The audio guide is a TOTAL waste of money!

Lapland, the Arctic, you will know all about them after a visit there. For adults and children, you can easily spend 2 hours there without getting bored. The Northern light simulator can also be an interesting thing to do if the weather was too cloudy to see any.
