Petit Futé's opinion on ARKTIKUM

Vintage plate 2020

A cultural and architectural site not to be missed in Rovaniemi with its glass roof that stretches over 170 m on the banks of the Ounasjoki River. The complex, which includes the arctic centre of the University of Rovaniemi and the Provincial Museum of Lapland, is dedicated to the nature and cultures of the peoples of the Far North. History is not forgotten with the painful episode of World War II: in October 1944, the German army destroyed 90% of Rovaniemi.

It is difficult not to be thrilled by the quality of the exhibitions and the always very educational aspect of the stagings. We learn a lot of things, such as that "arctic" comes from Arktikos in Same, which means "land of the great bear", or that the giant crab was introduced by man into the Barents Sea, throwing the whole ecosystem out of balance. In short, this playful visit is very instructive. It exhibits everyday objects and shows good films that allow you to learn more about the Sames. Allow at least 2 hours for the visit.

The museum regularly offers temporary exhibitions, which are less expensive to access (usually cost 5 euros), and allow you to rediscover the place over and over again. They also allow a shorter and different approach to the museum, for visitors in a hurry who would still like to enter this incredible building. Again, it's a must-see!

Alittle extra: the café-restaurant in the centre is delicious! Perfect for a gourmet break after your visit

Musée extrèmement original qui traite de la Laponie, au niveau historique et géographique, sa nature, son peuple...
Une belle partie montre la spécificté des aurores boréales.
Le multimédia y a une place importante.
Le musée à ne pas rater quand vous étes à Rovaniémi.

Un musée comme je les aime : intéressant, complet, diversifié, multimédia. On y passe facilement 3 heures sans se fatiguer (de toute manière il y a un resto sur place). Vaut la peine aussi pour - non seulement la Laponie et le peuple Same, mais aussi pour les expéditions polaires. Sujet traité également, le réchauffement climatique et ses effets.

Le musée, sur les rives de la rivière offre des expositions de qualités tant sur la diversité de la nature en Laponie que sur des faits historiques retraçant les combats entre russes et allemands
