The museum is located on the quayside between the Hurtigruten quay and the main bridge so its an easy visit off the Hurtigruten and i would definitely recommend it. The exhibits are a bit tired but generally it is really good, inside is a bit like a tardis, The best parts are the areas that deal with Amundsen and Fridjtof who are Norway's most famous explorers - their stories are really interesting and well told. You should pick up a guide book (in various languages) as there is limited instruction across the museum in English and German. Fascinating and well worth a couple of hours.
