An Arctic Experience Center for the Whole Family

Open every day from 10:00 to 16:00

We are preparing new exhibitions and expanding the aquarium.
During this period, some areas may be closed off.
The first part of the new exhibitions is complete, and more will be come
this autumn. Film screenings and seal feeding and training
will take place as normal. We look forward to offer new and experiences
and thank you for your patience in the meantime.

Polaria is an Arctic experience center for the whole family and one of two places in Europe where you can see bearded seals up close. See, feel, experience and understand why life in the sea and life on land depend on each other.

Polaria – Arctic knowledge experiences.


Expansion and New Exhibitions

We are in the process of expanding Polaria, and the first part of our new interactive exhibitions is ready in the foyer. The work will continue throughout the autumn, and the remainder of the new exhibitions will be ready in December. The exhibitions have been developed together with researchers from the Fram Center. The aquarium will also be expanded, and a brand new extension will be constructed at the back of the building. This is where our seals will move, into a brand new seal pool that holds 1 million liters of water - three times as much as the current seal pool. Here they will have plenty of natural daylight through large windows to both east and west, and they can even swim out onto their own balcony where they can lie down and enjoy the weather.

The vet

The health and well-being of the seals on Polaria is incredibly important to us. We have trained the seals to be examined by the veterinarian voluntarily, including inspection of the mouth and teeth.
