  • Great information and fun activities for kids and adults alike!
  • This one is on the small side, and definitely aimed at children. There is a plethora of interactive exhibits to explore and try out. Unfortunately, as with many child-oriented tourist places, parents made this one unbearable to stay at, as many just let their young ones run wild, making it impossible to check out any exhibit without being run into or shoved aside. They do have a nice break room though with a hot drink machine that charges just 30 cents for a coffee!
  • All about forest and wood. Warmly recommended.
  • Great place for children learn the arctic weather and environment.
  • Wonderful place. We didn’t expect but it was really fun.
