Reviewed 29 June 2018

An absolute gem of a venue. The museum itself offers a great range of exhibits and a great insight into Sami life, culture and history as well as information about the Norbotten and Laponia region and history.

The staff are wonderful, well informed, friendly and speak excellent Swedish, English and also Sami.

They attached restaurant offers some great meals including local delicacies.

The gift shop is one of the best (in terms of goods and prices) in the area.

As a regional guide, I frequently take groups to this museum and often book the 'guided tour' that is available. I would highly recommend this, there is a charge, but with a group of 7+ it is only very slightly more expensive than the standard entrance fee, so is well worth it!

The venue is also great for kids!

As a museum, it is quite good and it has a lot of information and artefacts about Lappland and the Saamis. There is some English translation on the labelling and there is a returnable English guide sheet to use. A café too - we didn't use this however.
The one special feature is the diorama of the region. It is a Google-based, 250 degree, multi-screen fly-through of the local landscape covering glaciers lakes, deltas etc., you may find that it can challenge your internal balance system a little, but cope with this and you will enjoy this unique feature.

We stopped in Jokkmokk and visited the museum on our way to Kiruna. We were very impressed by the set up - it was so lively and very informative.

We spent nearly 2 hours in the museum and you must go there if you want more details about the Sami life. Each room has a lot of information on all aspect of the Sami culture. It is quite a good place for kids too. Definitely a must if you are in town

I took an English tour of this museum for about $32 including entrance fee. It was a very good tour and made the visit to the museum more interesting. The shop at the museum is very nice as well.
