Worth a visit. you make a first contact with the life of the Lapons and you get important information. But it’s not so amazing as it could be

This is a great place to visit while you are in Rovaniemi. We only spent a few hours here but could have spent an entire day. They have areas for kids, interactive displays and so much history. We would have loved to stay longer!

Incredible exhibitions on different topics. Great display of the artefacts and use of modern technology. Will keep even the youngest visitors engaged and the older ones will definitely not be be bored as well. Great place to learn about the culture, nature and history of Finland. If your in Ravaniemi, you should definitely see this museum.

This time we didn't visit inside the museum but in the Arctic garden outside the museum.

In the foregrounds of Arktikum, along the shoreline of the Ounasjoki River, resides an Arctic garden.

The park displays a variety of species of plants and alpine vegetation that have uniquely adapted to survive the harsh northern climate of Lapland and the Arctic.
