The Northern Lights
The Northern Lights is a phenomenon that is seen in the skies on clear dark nights in the northern and southern polar regions. They are typically created about 100 km above the surface of the earth when accelerated particles in the earth’s magnetic field collide with molecules of air, which in turn release some of their resulting energy as visible light.

Arktikum is a science centre and a museum. The exhibitions of the Arktikum leads you through Arctic areas’ and Finnish Lapland’s history and modern day. You can see the Northern Lights multivision show almost every day in the Polarium Theatre. Arktikum also arranges several temporary exhibitions and events related to Northern themes.
