We really enjoyed this museum, which had several worthwhile exhibits, including one documenting religious life in Tromso and another documenting the city as it was in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. Best of all, the museum is free!

Went here in order to kill some time when it was snowing hard outside. Enjoyed the postcards of the Sami people but hated the religious exhibits. Okay because it's free but wouldn't want to go again.
