    Beautiful architecture. Interesting things about sámi's and Rovaniemi's history. Outdated way of presenting and illustrating information. Changing exhibitions aren't anything special

    I was a bit disappointed with it after reading some reviews - it was a nice way to spend a few hours, but it isn't anything really special, especially the Arctic part leaves a lot to be desired.

    Хороший и интересный музей, тут представлено много всего, не все интересно, но чем больше углубляешься тем интереснее, обязательно посмотрите фильм о Рованиеми с природой и сияниями и фильм о звездах!

    Экспозиция музея огромная: от костюмов, истории и климата до фотовыставок. Особо стоит отметить само здание музея, это что то удивительное

    Completo y riquiño. Se ve en una hora y tiene una recreación de auroras boreales que ves tumbado. Mola!

    To be exact: there is no Arktikum museum as such. The building is called Arktikum, which hosts one museum (Museum of Lapland) and one science center (The Arctic Centre). On top of this a lot more too.

    A GREAT museum, definitely worth a detour. We spent half a day there and enjoyed every exhibit. The museum focuses on Arctic life in general, though some exhibits are focused on Finland.
