The life boat exhibit was the best point of interest to us. Be sure to get inside the lifeboat and see what it felt like to be in that situation. The museum was full of interesting facts about Aalesund.

I would make the trip just for the awesome tiny boat exhibit that you can go inside! Very cool to get inside the boat and see how small the inclosure was and to hear the sound of the roaring sea. The nice (and super cute) guy working the museum on the Friday we were there let us have a look around despite the fact that it was actually closed for holiday. Cheers!

The museum is accessible to all language speakers and very nice. As others have mentioned the life boat exhibit was our favorite. We also enjoyed speaking with the staff. Definitely an opportunity to learn about the town!

The day we arrived as part of our cruise, Alesund was experiencing fairly heavy rain. So we planned our day accordingly - stay out of the rain as much as possible yet leave room to have fun and gain some knowledge. Thus we chose to walk to Alesund Museum in the heart of downtown.

My research on tripadvisor told me the museum was small but worthwhile. Sure enough we really enjoyed our visit. Before we went inside we walked up the hill a bit farther near the cannons and took some good pictures overlooking the city. After paying the cash admission and picking up our English guidebook we began our discovery. There are several floors to this museum. My favorite part was the enclosed lifeboat, large ship models, and city history including old doctors/dentist office, photograhers studio, Art Nouveau furniture samples, city resurgence from the devastating 1904 fire, and WWII resistance with radio room. Even if you visit Alesund on a sunny day I can recommend this museum. However, it is a bit difficult to find and is not accessible by wheelchair unless you arrive by taxi.

This museum because it gives a history of the town and the region and in particular it highlights how brave the locals were during the German occupation in WWII.

This was a nice and charming museum with good information about Aslesund. They had guides on each floor for multiple languages to read as you walked through. I enjoyed the museum.
