- Polar bears, wolves, ice picks and even a life size model air craft with wooden skis which was used in the Arctic and designed by Shavrov are on display at the Museum of the Arctic & Antarctic - the history, geography, exploration and culture of this far northern region. Located in what was the church of St Nicholas, this once-beautiful place of worship is now stuffed with anything that has to do with the Arctic circle and the excavation of it. Unfortunately, the entire exhibition looks rather worn and disheveled. And although the museum just celebrated its 70th anniversary, it seems trapped in the age when Russia was called the Soviet Union.
