Fodor's Review

Dating from 1872, northern Norway's oldest scientific institution is dedicated to the nature and culture of the region. Learn about the northern lights, wildlife, fossils and dinosaurs, minerals and rocks, and church art from 1300 to 1800. Outdoors you can visit a Sami gamme (turf hut), and a replica of a Viking longhouse. The pretty Arctic-Alpine botanical garden is the most northern in the world, at roughly the same latitude as Alaska's north coast.
