Great seal enclosure and a chance to see them close-up. Also plenty of other fish and sea-life to have a look at. The exhibits themselves are a little dated, but still worth a trip. Walking distance from the centre of town.

This tour takes about 30 mins. It really consists of 2 films (15 and 8 mins on the Artic that were very good) and an informative lecture (10 mins) about seals. If short on time, skip it.

If you didn't get the chance of watcing the wonderful aurora Borealis, you have the chance to see a simulation of one, and learning how it appears.You can also see some sea life and animals of the arctic.

If you're really interested in the arctic come here, you will see how the seals train and do some cute stuff, some pools with some pretty and some ugly fish and all the arctic has to offer, there are 2 movies to watch for free too, this is more of a children's place.

This is almost a rip-off, limited exhibitions, two films and one of those had no narration. There is a seal tank and some small aquarium but I felt this museum charged more than the experience was worth.
