All reviews arctic life great museum climate change northern lights arctic area finnish history interesting building large museum natural history informative museum worth a visit rainy day interesting information aurora borealis few hours couple of hours city centre
The museum looks space age! Exhibits are interactive and informative with modern and historical items. The markets were on, and the place was a hive of activity without being 'busy'. I bought some lovely souvenirs, and the kids ate ice-cream! Worth the visit.
The arktiktum building in Rovaniemi is easily accessible on foot from city center and has free parking. It is an iconic building in Rovaniemi and the architecture of its build is fantastic. The science exhibition inside is expensive, but good. Worth the visit.
You definitely need a few hours to properly explore everything here, but the real gem is the park and walking trail surrounding the Arktikum. Bring your camera because this a beautiful and photogenic area. The gift shop at the Arktikum is quite lovely as well!
Really awesome roof on this museum, with glass so you can see the sky, multi level exhibits and has a nice area for kids that’s interactive and educational. Lots of history and nature stuff! I really enjoyed this museum and you should allow yourself a...More
Allow at least two to three hours, there is a lot to see. Enjoy a video of the Aurora and the four seasons in the arctic. Great display of arctic animals, birds and people. I like particularly the Sami traditional costume display.
