Interesting exposition about all perspectives of life and environment in the arctic regions. I only was luckily getting out, because I watched a movie and they closed in the meantime. No one except me was there and I could luckily find and emergency exit I could open.

Informative museum especially on the Northern Lights and where to see it. There are also exhibitions on Artic nature and Sami Culture where we can also learn about the history of the Sami people and about Lapland. There is a café and souvenir shop.

One of the best museums exhibiting natural, scientific and cultural displays, something for all ages. I enjoyed the Firefox video, lying in a darkened room gazing up at the ceiling while the story evolved.
