The Museum is frequently visited by bigger groups of the visitors. From city center Bus no 37 is leaving, every half an hour for this Museum. It would be more interesting to the visitors if the films and more photos are displayed to show the...More

It seemed to be small from outside but there are actually lots to see. From animals and plants in Norway, aurora light show, to history of Nordic inhabitants, one should spend half day here to experience the effort they have put in. There is also...More

A room follow the other, it a quite big museum with all details you are looking for about local history. A guide in more or less every language is available

A guide is definitely worth having to help explain the Sami history and the development of the region. There are also exhibits dealing with religion and natural history. A very interesting museum.

Worth a visit for the history of Sami nation. Good information and friendly staff. Would recommend especially when coupled with a walk from Tromso Centre.

The Tromso Museum is housed near Tromso University and has some sections on Northern Lights and some on Arctic Life. Somehow, it lacks some objective and number of exhibits to have any impact on you. You can visit if you have time. The shop in...More
