Sadly we only had time to dash into and through the museum as we were travelling on the MS Nordlys and we were late into port. The Finnmarken is being refurbished so we never got to visit it, but the models of the ships are...More

Shame we only had a 1 hour stop here, really needed 1 1/2 hours to enjoy the museum without having to rush. Best bit is the old ship, interesting to compare with the current ones.

We intended to go into the museum but instead headed straight for the partly preserved Finnmark old ship (circa ‘50’s) . Even in its partially preserved state it is very good. We were able to access a large amount of the boat. All decks and...More
