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

This museum requires a short bus ride on the number 37 bus if you are staying in the city centre, but it is worth it (use the mobile apps for travel planning and ticketing for a cheaper price). There are quite a few different exhibits,...More

A room follow the other, it a quite big museum with all details you are looking for about local history. A guide in more or less every language is available

A guide is definitely worth having to help explain the Sami history and the development of the region. There are also exhibits dealing with religion and natural history. A very interesting museum.

Worth a visit for the history of Sami nation. Good information and friendly staff. Would recommend especially when coupled with a walk from Tromso Centre.

We enjoyed the exhibitions on Sami culture, very interesting and informative. Tasty, freshly made waffles in the cafe were delicious. We also visited the park beyond the museum and walked along the beach. There are buses but it was only a half hour walk from...More

The Tromso Museum is housed near Tromso University and has some sections on Northern Lights and some on Arctic Life. Somehow, it lacks some objective and number of exhibits to have any impact on you. You can visit if you have time. The shop in...More

This is an interesting museum, if a little out of the way - the bus will take you within a minute of it though. The exhibits are nice and informative, although it's odd how there's very little of the town's history itself, despite the name....More
