Arktikum

Highly recommended
An ingenious underground construction (by Birch-Bonderup-Thorup and Waade, 1992) with an elongated dome on top which, on the surface, looks like an ice tunnel. Two exhibitions are presented here. The Arctic Centre tackles the ecology and ethnology of the Arctic regions that are subject to great change, and not forgetting the Northern Lights; the Lapland Provincial Museum illustrates life in Lapland from prehistoric times to the present day. There is also a centre for information on Lapland and the Arctic regions, and a restaurant.
