While on the bus en route to our destinagtion, we enjoyed beautiful views like this one:
The place looked so peaceful (for a working Monday afternoon!):
We finally arrived at our destination:
One shot for the album:
Tromsø Museum is being operated by the Universitetet i Tromsø . There are many interesting displays, one of the most interesting sections must be the one that explains how aurora is created:
There was also the section that describes the different types of rocks found in Norway (no pic ).
The other interesting section (not found in other countries) was the one about the indigeneous people of northern Norway, the Sami people:
And their traditional livelihood:-
Their head gears (remember, winter is this far north part of Norway can be very cruel):
Their mode of transport (very environmentally friendly! ) :
There’s one section on Christianity. It’s so secluded and I felt rather eeri when I entered the place. I didn’t stay long, but I managed to see a “fat Christ”:
On our way out I saw the map pf the Scadinavian peninsular the the area where the Sami or Sapmi people occupy:
Like othe museums, this museum also has a section on mankind. I played with the computer generated image, and got myself decorated with middle-age jewellery. Prior to that, I had to answer a few questions, then got my pic snapped, and sent to my email address(reminded me of the Experience Green Growth Hall in Seoul ):
There was also a section on faunas of Norway, and here’s one nice display of the birds:
We knew we had to catch a certain bus to get home, so we had to leave earlier than we should. Here’s a pic of me in front of the museum while putting on my winter jacket:
Good bye,Tromsø Museum!
That’s all for now..
