Address: Hjalmar Johansens gate 12 , 9008 Tromsø

Housed in a very distinctive building that represents ice floes that have been pressed up on land by the rough seas of the Arctic, you will discover Polaria, just five minutes walk from the centre of Tromsø. 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 the Ivo Caprino film "Svalbard - Arctic Wilderness"and the Ole C. Salomonsen production "Northern Lights in Arctic Norway.

After the film visitors are taken along the "Arctic Walkway" where you through films and installations can see and learn how the ice is melting in the Arctic, how it affects the nature and the animals living there, and how researchers work in these areas.

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. The Polaria shop is an original gift and souvenir shop with a wide variety of local crafts, seal products, books, toys and other souvenirs related to our theme. We also have a cafeteria that is open every day, year round. Welcome to Polaria!
