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

Hurtigruten cancelled 2 bookings for the voyage from Trondheim to Tromsø at short notice and left is stranded in Trondheim (2 hours notice) with no alternate travel arrangements or compensation offered! We will avoid them like the plague!

Hurtigruten surely has a unique place in Norwegian transportation history and it for sure deserves it's own museum. So when our ship stopped in Stokmarknes I headed over to the museum. It was interesting. They had models of most of the ships and some great artifacts of the history of Hurtigruten. I'm a sucker for dinner plates and dinnerware, so... More

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,...
