The Provincial Museum of Lapland researches and presents the Lappish wilderness and cultural  heritage moulded by it. The new permanent exhibition Northern ways was opened on December 4th 2003. The exhibition presents the mythology related to nature and animals, especially the bear and the elk. Sàmi languages and costumes are presented in the Sàmi area department of the exhibition. The splendid scale models of Rovaniemi from 1939 and 1944 play a central role in the exhibition, with a database that enables the buildings to tell their stories.
