Das Arktikum ist ein Museum im Zentrum von Rovaniemi, Finnland.
Loved the exhibitions. Tons of interesting material. From Finnish and Lapland's history to Nordic icebreakers. There is even an aurora room and cool hall, where you can watch short but beautiful movie from Lapland's landscape.
Lots of interesting exhibitions. Great view on the nature around the city, especially in case of Northern Lights. A bit overpriced.
The Arktikum is a beautiful building with a long glass tunnel that gives an almost panoramic view of the lake at Arktikum Park. There are exhibitions on Lappish history and local ecology, with very well done displays, decent translations to English, and two gorgeous video installations. The views alone are worth a visit!
It was good but not great... if you have nothing to do then this place deserves a chance... unjustified 20 euros entry fee !!
Great museum of all things polar and nordic. Beautiful place to visit during the long winter months when Aurora Borealis can be seen from the museum.
This is a really great place to learn about the very rich and interesting history of northern Fenno-Scandinavia, it's historical population, it's traditions, it's peoples etc. There's also a lot of fauna and flora in really vividly restored displays which makes the experience hard to forget. The view is beyond amazing and there's also a cafe and lots of high quality goods to purchase.
Excellent museum. Well presented and very informative. The whole family was kept occupied for about 3 hours. Good selection in the gift shop too!
