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!

I have spent more than an hour to watch the films and the photos of various interesting towns and the settlements in northern Norway.

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.

The museum presents artists from the region and how they perceive the binary contemporary reality. The visitor can see modern trends of art with international perceptions!

A must see if you are interested in local history or photography. The museum is divided in to three parts, indigenous history, religion and photos of the town. It's a great place to get warm in the winter and you can get a warm beverage.
