The building is interesting in its shape and design. It also has a lot of well organised information, give yourself plenty of time to look through it all. There are some crafts that you won't see anywhere else and I think they are ethically motivated to support Sami artists. Therefore some pieces are more expensive than in other locations. It is well worth the visit.

This is lovely building that has many uses - the parliament meets four times a year here, the auditorium holds 450 people and there is also an art gallery. Our guide gave us a good insight into the various uses, weddings can also be held here.

Cool architecture and very awesome Finnish design! A must just because of the exterior! Nice shop with nice sami crafts. Didn't visit any exhibitions, but it was a cool feeling being in the same building as the Saami parlament of Finland!
