This place is located next to the Arktikum. After interesting exhibitions there, it offered quite a little for us adults. For children, it gives probably more.

Are you interested about Finnish forests? Pilke Science Centre is the place to discover them. Place for families to spend good time in Rovaniemi. Children just love this place and so do the adults. My favorites are the real Ponsse cutting machine and "get lost in the forest"-simulator.

I suspect this was a thinly veiled attempt to promote logging. Which is probably a major industry in Finland. Even so, it is an interactive display for children. This was not mentioned on brochures we read. But as a teacher I was really keen to try out the activities. They were lame. So bad. Nothing clever or stimulating. Did the kids who were there agree with me? Two boys monopolized the gun/shooting activity and two girls the singing with protection on screen. The rest of the activities failed to hold any kid’s attention. It could be so good but this is below par of what I believe could be achieved. People vote with their feet and despite the crowds in town, few people were there.

Right next to the Artikum. It's a relatively small museum, yet, we had a lot of fun. Even my dad enjoyed the games. Good to bring kids there.
