The only downside is not enough time if you are visiting from Hurtigruten. The museum visit could take 2 hours or more and the visit to the preserved M/S Finnmark could take over an hour. However Hurtigruten stops for just 60 minutes. Enjoy what you can but don't miss the boat.

This review is written from the perspective of an American tourist making their first trip to Norway. The most likely way that a tourist would visit the Hurtigruten Museum is during a stop as part of a Hurtigruten cruise. There is no entry fee to the museum. The tour is self directed and takes about an hour.

Though the museum is rather small, it varies a lot with film, pictures, objects, models and text. You learn a lot about the history from the very beginning in the late 19th century until today. The informations are mostly written in Norwegian, English and German. A hightlight should be the biggest museum object in the world: the 1956 built Hurtigruten... More

Just to travel on the Hurtigruten Coastal Voyage you are experiencing maritime tradition. And to visit this museum you are experiencing the history of that tradition. A visit here is great fun for anyone who loves sea travel. The route you will travel, if you are on a Hurtigruten ship, is known as Norway's Highway 1 and is billed as... More

You get so used to travelling on modern cruise ships it takes a visit to somewhere like the Hurtigruten museum to realise how ships have changed in the past fifty years. Being of an age that had travelled by ship some 50 years ago I had forgotten that tables used to have little lips around them to stop the cutlery... More

Like others we visited the museum free as part of a Hurtigruten Classic Voyage Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen, this month (March 2014). Excellent range of ship models. The actual ship alongside was covered in protection resembling corrugated iron, so very unattractive, and we lacked time to go on board anyway.

We visited the museum on our way South on the Kirkenes - Bergen voyage. Having been onboard a Hurtigruten ship and experienced their hospitality and purpose, it was excellent to see the growth of the organisation from it's inception to the current fleet of ships. Definitely worth a visit. Entrance was free to people on the voyage. How did they... More

Considering we were on a Hurtigruten cruise in search of the Northern Lights, it was a given that we would also visit the Hurtigruten Museum. Entrance is free to Hurtigruten's passengers - which was a bonus! It was amazing to read about and see how it all started and to view the various displays some of the beautiful old dinner... More

Extremely interesting museum and especially as it has the original ship attached to it. How wierd it was to wander around this old ship and see how they really were - so much better that pictures. Only downside was it was freezing cold on the old ship. rest of museum was great sorry I didn't have enough time

My ship had only 45 minutes in the port of Stokmarknes but I used every minute to see as much of the Hurtigruten Museum as I could. Since I was sailing on the MS Finnmarken, it was very special to tour the decks of the 1956 MS Finnmarken and to wander among its passenger cabins, dining rooms and deck areas.... More
