This is a museum that describes in a very detailed way the history of the Hurtigruten ships. It has interesting pictures, documents, equipment, old parts of ships, and a very intesting film describing the usage of the ship from the beginning until nowadays. It's worh while a visit even if you don't traval by Hurtigruten.

We went to the museum while on an 11 day voyage on the MS Nordnorge from Bergen to Kirkenes and back to Trondheim. This voyage is absolutely marvellous and would have to be one of the best ways to see the Norwegian coast. The scenery is absolutely mind blowing and calling into the various ports is great. The museum at... More

I thought it was particularly interesting that this service was started as a commercial enterprise - and still is one where in Alaska, the same service was started and is still run by the state. It was great to see how the boats that we were on had started out in the 1800's and are still going today. We also... More

This is the museum for the famous postal ships of Norway and a general maritime museum as well. You can see the way seafarers lived and managed in the old days.

During the Hurtigruten boat stop in Stokmarknes, it was so rainy that all we could do is to visit the Hurtigruten Museum. Admission is free if you come with Hurtigruten ship. Interesting to understand the evolution of the company and to enjoy the beautiful maquettes. The old dry-docked Finnmarken ship provides a great insight into the old journeys and the... More

Both for adults and children. The ship is under some repair and in some places not well-taken care of, which is a pity... However, you can visit some decks and see how things used to be (living rooms, cafës and rooms). The exhibition will give you some insights on Hurtigruten history throughout time.

Amazing museum. Strongly recommended to anyone interested in ships and everything related to the sea travelling. Admission is free in case you come with Hurtigruten ship. You just need to present your cruise card. But honestly the museum is worth paying for the entrance.

We did not have much time, but decided to have a look at the Hurtigruten Museum. We found it really interesting to see and read about the way things were done years ago. We are certainly very pampered now, if one compares! I would not spend too much time there, but it is worthwhile to visit. I can't remember having... More

Having had our 2 and a half day cruise cancelled the day before our flight to Trondheim, we rebooked for the Sunday sailing. Two hours before we were due to embark we picked up an email saying our stop was cancelled, the ship would not be docking there. No information was included as to how we could get to the... More
