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..
