“The Arktikum will make you fall in love with the arctic circle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

The exhibitions are very much tailored to the fauna and flora within the arctic circle. It is beautiful to see the interest in this amazing area of our world and the efforts to conserve it. Or if there are not enough efforts to conserve one would make sure that one goes away with the energy to do everything to conserve this region. There is a presentation of photographs in the Polarium which features Northern Lights and wildlife photos which is amazing and should not be missed. We did enjoy our stay in the museum and can recommend it to anyone passing through Rovaniemi.

“Desapointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

There is nothing to do besides crossing that line and shop souvenirs from the expensive and unclean stores.Don't risk yourself to buy something to eat from the restaurants in the arctic circle,everything seems close to expiry date...
