Quite a pleasant little museum that will keep you amused for an hour or so. Had fun taking pictures of the large screen backdrops so that we’d have something to show the folks back home if we failed to see the actual Northern lights during our trip. :)
Amazing museum! Not too big but very informative and well displayed. Also the cinema showing the northern lights was really nice. Coffee or tee was also available at the end for free, which was a really nice extra.
