This small museum show a lot of pictures of the old Narvik, I enjoyed the collection and spend about an hour here. Be aware! This museum is not open every day.. and because of that I almost missed a chance to visit it.

Narvik was important place to transfer the iron ore. This museum has midgets to explain how to ship to iron ore. I think it's interesting. This museum is small, so one hour is enough to enjoy. And one more thing, the view of the city...More

An old-fashioned museum with very little to see. Third floor was closed. The museum shop only had a couple of books and stickers. Not worth a visit.

Small, locally interesting, overpriced and not worth more than 90 minutes. The staff was capable, but neither engaging npr greatly knowledgeable. The story told is interesting, but raised lots of questions. I reckon a two year study completed for a PhD could be converted into...More

I was disappointed by the museum. I honestly don't wish to be disrespectful but it was neither very interesting nor very well done - at least for a non-Norwegian. I struggled to connect the exhibits to the surrounding area and I got the sense that...More

A delightful museum with terrific displays of early town life in Narvik, some insight into the history and strong living culture of Sami people, and experiences of the town during war. I felt that this museum was curated, and is operated, with love and pride...More

Unfortunately we cannot provide English translations to all the texts in the exhibition, due to the lack of space. However there are free booklets with translation to English, German and Russian availiable at the reception desk. All the videos are dubbed to English or shown...More

Of all the museums we visited in Sweden and Norway, this was the only one that included a whole room to the Sami, their culture and their traditions. The other displays were equally as informative about this industrial town. The staff were very helpful and...More
