Polaria – An Arctic experience!
In a distinctive building depicting ice blocks pushed ashore by the harsh seas of the Arctic, you will find Polaria , in the center of Tromsø. Polaria was established in connection with the relocation of the Norwegian Polar Institute to Tromsø. Through knowledge-based exhibitions made in collaboration with researchers from the Fram Center , shall Polaria reflect some of the climate and environmental research that takes place in Arctic regions.
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.
