Once I knew this museum was just around the corner from my hotel, I had to go, even knowing that there's not much English - any exhibit around the subject of Arctic and Antarctic life and exploration is always fascinating!
Considering previous reviews, I was surprised to find as many as 3 people working there, and about another 8 or so visitors while I was there, but now I'm surprised that it doesn't get a lot more visitors!
Yes so there is very little English, in many parts none at all, but the exhibits are well laid out, stories well told through photos, models and various items on display, including displays of penguins, a polar bear and various birds and foxes, tools and implements, ship models, clothing, maps...so I found it well worthwhile to spend about 40 minutes walking through the museum...in an old church building, so not so large a space, downstairs is the Arctic section and upstairs the Antarctic.
With more English translations, I would rate this very highly!
