Admission is free, you need to lock up your bags (also free). Some of the exhibits are very interesting. There is a room for drawing, great to sit down and entertain the kids on a rainy day.

Thank you for the nice review! If you find yourself in Tromsø again, please come by as we have new exhibitions at least twice a year.

If you are into contemporary art, this exhibition is for you. It has artwork from all Nordic countries, which, coming from another Nordic country, is fascinating. It is also nice that there is no entrance fee.

Free to enter and the man on the arrival desk gave a handout with English explanations- some interesting pieces although not a must see unless you are an art lover

I visited the museum on a snowy afternoon and found that it had been converted for a period into a display devoted entirely to the Sami people and culture of northern Scandinavia. This was very rewarding and well-presented with some gorgeous paintings, glassware and textiles...More
