The next morning, we continued on to our next engagement.

But before we left Inari, we checked out the SIIDA museum, designed by all-around great guy Juhani Pallasmaa. It's a museum on Sámi culture and the environment of Lapland. This is the entrance.

One of the exhibit rooms. There are only a few rooms but they're all packed with information and objects. I really liked the format.

Midnight sun time-lapse photo. I can't quite imagine what this is like to actually experience. Things like this at SIIDA and Arktikum, as well as of course actually being in the region, put an Arctic spell on me that is still active, and I think I'm going to have to go back and explore further.

Oh look, more skylights, but these are outside, like these others.
