Sámi National Museum

Lonely Planet review

The Sami National Museum is also called the Sami Collection. Smaller and more serious, it's been rather upstaged by the genial razzmatazz down the road. Devoted to Sami history and culture, it has displays of colourful, traditional Sami clothing, a bewildering array of tools and artefacts and works by contemporary Sami artists. Outdoors, you can roam among a cluster of traditional Sami constructions and follow a short trail, signed in English, that leads past and explains ancient Sami reindeer trapping pits and hunting technique. In summer, guiding is included within the ticket price.
