Cute little museum with lots of facts and stories about the northern lights! They have tales from different cultures regarding the lights, as well as scientific information about the natural phenomena itself. Nice place to stop.

We called into the museum after our trip around Iceland where we missed out on the northern lights. The museum was very interesting with interacting displays. Good way to see the lights if you missed them.
