An interactive approach to take a step into the arctic culture
The Arktikum Science Center and Museum is a real experience and to make the best of it, there are some steps that you cannot miss.
SEE : In one of the rooms, you will find a cinema where a video showing the beauty of the seasons in the Arctic is projected. In another one, you will be invited to lie down and admire a video of the auroras for a relaxing moment. The museum also focuses on education and different displays will allow you to see Rovaniemi on a different scale and to feel like you’re meeting with a life size polar bear.
TOUCH : What a better way to learn than by using your senses? Touching the ice or the fur of different animals at different periods of the year will help you get in the arctic atmosphere.
EAR : Everything in the museum allows you to escape in another world. Thanks to different sounds, you will have a better idea of what it is to live in the arctic. Stories of Finnish people told by their own voices, recordings of animal sounds, the noise of a snowmobile on its way to the forest… These are some of the things that you will hear in the Arktikum.
PLAY : Having fun is always a good way to test your knowledge and learn even more. That’s why the centre offers to take part in games and on-screen tests that add a real asset to the experience.
