This is a small place but it is well worth your time to stop and taste their reindeer dishes and then go out to feed there small on-site herd. I know that sounds wrong... but oh dear! The posted signs tell you a lot about the Sami culture and the reindeer. It was worth the time and entrance fee. Enjoy

Sad looking reindeer, marginal Sami artifacts and historical pieces, not very impressive in any way. You can feed the reindeer some lichen for another $10. Save your $ and skip this one.

This is small but a very educational view of the natives and the way they lived. We visited the museum after our reindeer sledding.

Range of exhibits made for an interesting hour or so pottering around outside. Feeding Lichen to the Reindeer was definitely a highlight! They're immediately attracted to the food & oblivious to the antlers on their head, so you need to keep a watchful eye on them & have a wing man to lob the bag of food away from you... More

The best part of the visit was to see reindeer. Apart from that there was not a lot to see although there is a shop and a small cafe

Quite expensive for what it is, but at least you are supporting the local Sami people. Really enjoyed feeding the reindeer.

We went here after a reindeer trip at the ice hotel and it was very interesting but we were so cold after the trek we probably didn't look round it as much as we could have
