A great deal of information can be found in this museum. Although much of the text is in Norwegian, there are 'prompt sheets' in various languages located around the build. Well worth a visit

Since I was born in november 1945, this museum tells a lot about the people and what they did when they returned to their homes that was totally destroyed and burned in autumn 1944. In 1946, they started building, and they live in all kinds of "houses" during the first years. After a few years most of the houses and homes was rebuilt, and the people could return to a normal life. The museum show you how and who managed the great job they did.

This museum opened up so much more of the history of this period of the 20th c and all that went on in this lovely reconstructed town. We learnt so much more about the events of the later end of the 2nd World War occupation and the scorched earth policy.

Interesting museum covering the history of Hammerfest during and after WWII. Excellent quality, but could do with some more introduction. It feels a bit like you're "thrown into" the exhibit and are expected to know a lot of the basics already. If you are new to Norwegian history it might be worth trying to ask for a guide.

This museum tells the story about Hammerfest and it's reconstruction after the 2nd world war. They have a interesting collection of photo's and video's about the nazi occupation. Certainly worth a visit.
