We visited the Hurtigruten Museum during a portcall while beeing on a trip with the MS Nordnorge (southbound). It was a great experience with informative and interesting facts about the founder and the history of Hurtigruten. Also you get to see the old (date of construction: 1956) drydocked MS Finnmarken where you get the feeling from the old days.

Fascinating to see the 4 decks of the old vessel and compare with the level of comfort on the 7 decks of the modern Hurtigruten ships. Cleaning up the upper deck and handing out a leaflet or placing some information boards would do more justice to the Finnmarken. The museum has several interesting scale models.

The museum itself is interesting but we got really deceived by the MS Finmarke. You can visit the boat, but you will get has no explanation or even sign at all, you can just go around but it is getting old and there isn't anything done to refresh it. It feels like they just dropped it there and opened the... More

Thanks for your reaction! I can assure you that we really try to make the ship better. Lots of work have been done with the ship since we put her on land in 1999. Now we have plans to build a big house over the whole ship and also a house for the section of the SS Finmarken 1912. Things... More

Sadly we have just a very short time to visit, 30 minutes, which is a common problem when taking the coastal cruise with Hurtigruten. However we made the most of it, running through the dry docked ship and then rushing through the rest of the museum. It is well laid out and there is an interesting film of the engine... More

The cost of the entrance ticket was 50 NOK and it is possible to buy it onboard if you are travelling on the Hurtigruten ship. The artifacts relating to the generation of a coastal service along the west coast of Norway were well documented and this was well worth the entrance fee. There was also a museum relating to the...

Arrived in the town today on the current Finnmarken. For me the highlight of the museum is the original Finnmarken, preserved outside and accessed through a gallery on level 3. Inside the old ship reminded me of many vessels of 40/50 years ago! The rest of the museum contains many interesting exhibits and the history of the Hurtigruten company. There... More

This was one of our stops on the Bergen to Kirkenes voyage & gives a great overview of the history of all of the Hurtigruten ships plus you also get the change to visit one of the older retired cruise ships, the MS Finnmarken. A tip: do the ship first then go back to the museum to look at the... More

It was fascinating to compare the Finnmarken (in dry dock) with the Midnatsol which we were traveling on. Not enough time to really do the rest of the museum justice. Free for Hurtigruten passengers.
