The Inari-Saariselkä region boasts two remarkable museums, which are the only ones of their kind in the world. Located in the parish village of Inari, the Siida Sami Museum and the Northern Lapland Nature Centre give you an interesting insight into the culture and life of the people of the North. There are a series of exhibitions in Siida year round, including a feature on the Northern Lights. The Tankavaara Gold Prospector Museum is the only one of its kind in Europe so the village plays an important role for those panning for gold around the world. The museums are open year-round.
