  • Interactive museum that explains how the Northern Lights happen. Very interesting and informative. Stunning photographs and displays. A must see to understand this natural phenomenon.
  • So interesting and helpful. Fun reviews of Northern lights myths from around the world. Terrific information on viewing the lights and can set up with tours. Great pictures and gift shop. Got blue ray disc on the lights to enjoy.
