A beautiful modern building, with helpful staff. Informative displays on N Norway archaeology, anthropology etc Senior tickets available (they asked us). It is a little way out of town but under an hours walk including Telegraph point (buses & taxis easy too)

I really enjoyed this museum! So much information and very interactive. The Sami section and the section with the religious artefacts were my favourite. I would recommend anyone visiting Tromso make a stop at this place.

Everything you wanted to know about the Sami, the early days of life in the Arctic and other bits and pieces too. Not a lot about the 20th century from 1914-1945 which might be interesting to find out about. Good interactive displays and a good shop with standard Norwegian prices. Small car park and difficult to find in a snow-storm!... More

A great museum , great for kids.We arrived and the place was closed(they had changed the opening hour to 11.00 a.m) However as would only happen in Norway, they opened up for us early. It is a distance from the centre and quite expensive by taxi.

A small museum that looks at local Sami culture, rock formations, Northern lights and a few other little things. Interesting displays and it is really funny to read some of the English on the displays as they are not quite correct. For example: one display ask about persecuting seagulls. Worth a quick visit.

As I see it, the most interesting thing to see at this museum is the explanation on how the Northern Lights occur. By all means, the museum have many different exhibitions, but if you are not particularly interested in the first place, these will not appeal to you in particular. That said, the museum has made a very thorough exhibition... More

Varied displays, allowing you to move on or linger over the displays at your own pace. A bus trip to the edges of town, a worthy addition if you are unfamiliar with this part of the world
