I thought we’d nip round here fairly rapidly. Wrong. Quiet, calm and restful wander around a range of fascinating exhibits loosely based on Tromsø and the surrounding area. Not very interactive- so young children may get a bit restive. NB: THREE MUSEUM TICKET - At...More

A nice place that tells a bit about the original inhabitants - the Sami (who were not bound by political borders - they lived/wandered in Norway, Sweden and Finland - around the mountains they share.

It seemed to be small from outside but there are actually lots to see. From animals and plants in Norway, aurora light show, to history of Nordic inhabitants, one should spend half day here to experience the effort they have put in. There is also...More
