We went here as part of a cruise ship excursion. I don't think I would make a special trip if visiting the city again. It does offer great 360 degree views of the city

This is a great museum with a parabolic screen video of the Northern Lights, from how they begin and pictures. Also there are large areas explaining glaciers, water, and even an ice cave. From the observation deck you can see all of the city.
