In addition to visiting Santa Claus in Rovaniemi, there is another place you must visit, which is the North Pole Center. Rovaniemi is located in the Arctic Circle, so the chance of seeing aurora here is very high. There are many aurora here. There are also exhibits of animal models in the Arctic Zone. A lot of knowledge can be learned here.
The Chinese generally call her the Polar Museum, and the museum itself is already a huge building here. There are many exhibits inside, and there are many beautiful pictures of the northern lights. There are also many local exhibits to see.
The Finnish Polar Museum is 2 kilometers away from the center of Rovaniemi, built by the river. Next to it is the Science Center. Going on weekends in summer, very few people. There are various polar animal models, the Komi people in northern Finland, which simulate aurora, and a room where the temperature can be adjusted to simulate low temperature. There is no Chinese in the introduction, but English is not a big deal. Overall it is good.
You can see some strange natural phenomena and be impressed.
The Polar Museum is a cultural institution that aims to study the natural environment and polar culture of Lapland (a gathering place for indigenous people in the Arctic). It mainly shows the traces of people's lifestyle and civilization under the harsh living conditions of Lapland. The exhibition exhibits a wealth of exhibits, including various precious photos, cultural relics, audiovisual materials and film documentaries. Rovaniemi is not a big city. If you live near the city center, you can walk up to 1.5 kilometers north along Ounasjoentie Street to reach the museum. The scale here is relatively larger and more professional. The two-story museum is divided into many exhibition halls, displaying the landscape ecology, natural changes, and the culture of many ethnic groups throughout the Arctic Circle. There is also an exhibition hall dedicated to the history and culture of the Sami people, as well as many 1:1 restored models, specimens, kayaks, etc. It is worth mentioning that the building of this museum itself is in the shape of a long finger pointing to the north.
