Incredibly neat museum! Tons of interesting information about culture, climate, geology, history, you name it! Exhibits were all fascinating and well put together. The staff is very friendly, and the gift shop was nice. The architecture is top-notch too. If you're in the area, this is a must-see
Ten minute walk from the Shopping Center. A very nice museum all about Polar Climate. Best to spend up to two hours for everything inside. Just outside, a park with a view of the Frozen River. Next door is the science museum You can buy a ticket good for 3 museums at much cheaper price.
