Norbottens Museum, Luleå (Sweden)

It's not the Louvre, obviously.

Nor do I really expect it to be.

What I do expect, however : A permanent collection to mirror the ecosystem, culture and history of the very north of Sweden. Explicit signs in Swedish and English. A consequential exhibition of Sàmi art.

What I get : Temporary exhibitions of rather disappointing characters. A great playroom if you are 6 and want to play at the 19th century. A beautiful cafeteria.

(There are ways to make small museums work! This is one.)
