Polarias attractions

Polaria has an Arctic aquarium, interesting knowledge-based exhibits, a panoramic cinema, and a gift and souvenir shop. In our panoramic cinema, you can look forward to our two panoramic films. In the Ivo Caprino film "Svalbard - Arctic Wilderness", a little auk takes you on an airborne trip with you in a helicopter, along the west coast of Spitsbergen - the largest island in the group known as Svalbard. In "Northern Lighs in Arctic Norway" the aurora is being explained and you are shown some beautiful filmshots from the Tromso-region. After the film visitors are taken along the "Arctic Walkway" where you can experience our new exhibition "Priceless". Priceless is an exhibition concerning ice and snow in the Arctic areas. Through short films, pictures, and music played on ice cores from the Arctic and the Antarctic, you can learn about the melting of the ice in glaciers and the melting of sea ice. In the aquarium the main attraction are the bearded seals. The bearded seal is an arctic species, and they are very popular among children and adults alike, due to their quiet disposition and intelligent nature. The aquarium has interesting exhibits of the most common species of fish in the Barents Sea.
