Don't miss when in Gränna! The story of a massive failure of male egos! There are things for smaller children, but if you really want to enjoy the full experience of the museum make sure to have some extra time.

The arctic museum's main focus is the story of Andre's ill-fated attempt to reach the north pole.The remains of the expedition were discovered and brought back, and because of the arctic environment are very well preserved.
