  • Excellent museum. Well presented and very informative. The whole family was kept occupied for about 3 hours. Good selection in the gift shop too!
  • 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.
