Handy for Hurtigruten travellers, being just meters from the docked ship, and free for Hurtigruten customers (ask the tour manager on board). The old 1956 Finnemarken ship, now dry docked, is wonderful to walk around, and provides a great insight in to the old journeys. We hugely appreciated the modern MS Midnatsol when we reboarded!

Enjoyed the museum and particularly the original Finnmarken which we just had time to whizz around whilst on a recent 'Hunting the Lights' trip on the Richard With. Such a different experience now from how it was then - enlightening. Would recommend Hurtigruten - excellent journey to Kirkenes and back.

Whilst I agree with the other reviews concerning lack of time to visit, and the limitations of the static displays within the entrance area ... taking the lift to the third floor and crossing over the road to board the preserved MS Finnmarken was a nostalgic experience for me having made two trips in the late 1970's in contemporary vessels,...

As with most of the other reviewers we visited the Hutigruten Museum when our Hutrigruten Ship, the Trollford, stopped in Stokmarknes. The museum was interesting, particularly the old ship the Finnmarken which made us appreciate the comforts of the modern ship. However the length of the stop made the visit rushed and as it appeared most of the other passengers... More

We visited the Hurtigruten museum when our ship docked in Stokmarknes for 90 minutes. The museum was ok, but with something of a jumble of exhibits of photographs, documents and artefacts. We spent most of our time exploring the decommissioned 1950s boat, the Finnmarken, which is in dry dock adjacent to the museum. Standards of comfort have certainly improved in... More

This is a very small museum, with lots of exhibits, but very little editing or presentation. It's run by the hurtigruten company, and when the ship is in the harbour, the museum is very busy - avoid if you can! The most interesting exhibit is one of the older coastal express boats, where you get to see old cramped cabins,... More

Our Hertigruten ship was docked in Stokmarknes about 1 1/2 hours. We rushed straight to the museum. We had time to go through at a fast pace. It was enjoyable seeing the original "MS Finnmarken". It dates back to the 1950's, and rests in dry dock here and is part of the museum tour. The first Hertigruten voyage departed in... More

If you are travelling on a Hurtigruten ferry your time will be limited here as the stop is only 60 minutes. The museum is in two parts: the exhibition/history of Hurtigruten ferries - and the preserved MS Finnmark. You do not have time for both! Unless you have a specific interest in the history of Hurtigruten, the ship is by... More

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.
