They cover nearly all one need to know about cultural, ethical, climate change, resources, animals and life (now and then) in the arctic.

The admission fee is € 15 per adult.

I would recommend this museum!

We learned a lot about Arctic, science about cold areas in the world. Open until 6 pm. Went and came back in 20 minutes walking from downtown Rovianemi.

Creative and insightful museum. I appreciated how interactive many of the exhibits were. Our group of three only had enough time to see one museum and we went with Artikum. I left with a greater appreciation and understanding of the local culture and history of the Arctic region. I could easily have spent 2-3 hours going through the exhibits here if our group had more time to spend there.

I'm not a huge fun of museums, but this one was surprisingly interesting. The museum has a huge exposition of items related to the nature and to the human history from ancient times to our days. I especially liked the areas dedicated to relatively late periods during the 20-th century. There's a large library too, which I happened only to skim. If I'd had more time, I would definitely stay there for longer. Not to mention the convenient location, just several minutes of walking from the city center.

Super experience learning the history of Finland. It´s people and geography all done eith the care that is so traditionally Finnish and that means with care. Highly recommend, they´ll tell you 2 hours to see it, we spent 4 1/2 and will likely return on our next trip.

We had been here with two children (8 and 12 years old). The article circle exhibition was not as interesting as expected. The exhibition about live in and around Rovaniemi was much more interesting. It is a bit difficult to understand where to find what as parts of the exhibition are split across two floors. It might be worth to buy the multi ticket that allows entrance to the science center that is very interesting for kids.

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!
