Arktikum building was opened to the public on the 75th anniversary of Finland's independence on December 6, 1992. On this special day, Wednesday 6th of December 2023, we offer free entrance to Arktikum exhibitions from 10am to 6pm.
In addition to the permanent exhibitions, you can currently see the special exhibition 'Duodjebálgát - Paths of Duodji' by the Regional Museum of Lapland. In the exhibition, we travel alongside two Saami artisans to explore the Saami craft traditions and skills passed down through their families. We also delve into the formation of the artisans' own craft identities.
Arktikum Café is also open on Independence Day Wednesday 6th of December, from 12pm to 5pm (no lunch).
Please note that the free admission does not apply to pre-booked group reservations.
