When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This museum tells you how hard life was and is in this area of Finland. You will see many items and ways of life that is experienced in this cold area of the world. How determined the people were and are to live life the way they want to. Definitely would recommend a visit as from the street just looks like all in the area.

Great place to visit on a nice day. When you pay the entry fee you can get a booklet that explains everything in English. All the buildings are numbered. Some were locked for repairs but the others had wonderful displays. A few of the buildings are original on site, others have been moved to site to be preserved. There is alot of history in tools, farming equipment, fishing equipment etc. You can walk down by the river and on a good day it has a wonderful view of the city.

We walked 50 minutes from our hotel here (tip: ask to use the hotel's free bikes!) and this place was a downer. Just a lot of old items in run down buildings much of which were closed. Skip this!

An interesting and an unique place in Rovaniemi. The museum and its buildings show the old Rovaniemi which cannot be seen in many places in todays Rovaniemi because of the WW II. The museum shows well how the life of a wealthy family was in the 1800s. The museum includes about 20 buildings. Inside the buildings there is a big variety of tools, clothes and other stuff. The newly renovated fishing exhibition is one of the most famous parts of the museum and it it unique also in the national level. Definitely worth a visit!

A well planned museum that lets you interect with the items exposed. Prepare yourself to stay in the museum for at least three hours if you want to get the best of it.
Interactive displays that makes everything interesting to learn and makes one imagine how these people survived the freezing temperatures during the years and how the Earth's climate is rapidly changing.
Highly suggest it especially for families.
