Downstairs in the Metsähallitus (Finnish Forest and Park Service) building next to the Arktikum, this is a highly entertaining exhibition on Finnish forestry. It has dozens of interactive displays that are great for kids of all ages, who can clamber up into a logging vehicle or play games about forest management. Multilingual touchscreens provide interesting background information. Sustainable forestry is the focus, though a bear-hunting simulation breaks the PC mould.
