“Visit the Polar Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

A small museum but well worth visiting. A guide leaflet in English and other languages is available but you can't take it with you when you leave. There is fascinating information about many aspects of "polar" life.

The building was one of Tromso's older and more interesting and the exhibits told the story of explorers and how they lived along with some insights into the artic flora and fauna .

“Interesting museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I visited this museum after seeing the great reviews on Trip Advisor. At first i wasn't too sure about this museum from the exhibits downstairs but as we read on in the pamphlets and went upstairs it was a fascinating story about the adventures of Nansen. Worth a visit.

“Interesting Perspective”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

BRRR: these museums highlight the difficulties of Nordic life, making you feel like a really big wimp for complaining about being cold while waiting ten minutes for a bus or something...
