Somewhat tricky to find, but is is located at the end of the dock (and not 100 meter before where the sign is outside and inside). It is no so big, but you walk through the ice... read more

Get of your ship and rush to this place only 100 meters left from the Hurtigruten pier to be there before the others arrive. It' expensive 400 Nok for 2 adults plus 1 child, but they are not really prepared to handle the arrival of big crowds of people. Once you are in, it' really cold there admire the beauties... More

...you don't get to see everyday, but pricey! 160 NOK per adult, 95 NOK per children. You will see some ice sculptures and they change once in a while. You can even have a drink at the bar, while sit on an ice sofa! Dress adequately, even though they will provide you some ponchos and gloves. It's really cold inside,... More

I guess some people might enjoy this sort of thing, but in my oppinion this is just another tourist trap. The concept is something you can find is most cities these days and as always you get the feeling that you pay too much for too little.

It is a place you have to visit because you have seen it in tv, and you have to check that cross in your trip in the area. The place is quite funny, chilling and very quiet. We were alone and spoke with the nice waiter. Having wine (bad wine) in a glass made of ice is also a funny... More

I have never seen anything like this before. Impressive with all the sculptures. The museum should have more lights so you could see everything better. The entrance fee !!

I thought it was a bit overpriced, but enjoyed walking through the display. The lighting was not very good, which meant that photos did not come out so well, as flash lighting is obviously not allowed. On exiting, you help yourselves to a small glass of some or other drink to warm you up.

It was a nice visit to kill some time while waiting for the ferry. You get a free drink included in the entry price but somehow i was expecting the place to be bigger and look more like a proffesional exbition rather than crammed warehouse. I heard they would be renovating the exhibition and adding new sculptures which seems like... More

The exhibition is very small and the majority of the ice sculptures looked like having already melted somewhat - sometimes you couldn't even recognize what the sculpture should represent. We would not recommend it, especially not against the background of the price
