Ájtte Swedish Mountain and Sami Museum

Highly recommended
This unique and fascinating museum, the Ájtte, a Swedish mountain and Sami museum, is dedicated to the cultural heritage of the Sami (Lapp) people and their environment (mountains, forests, rivers). The presentation of the collections is as important as the exhibits themselves, and includes an open-air presentation on the habitat and flora in the surrounding area. The spotlight then focuses on the Sami themselves, from historical, cultural and ecological viewpoints. The nearby alpine garden provides a perfect insight into mountain vegetation.
