Super-interesting exhibits on Kirkenes's ordeal during WW2. One of the world's few Shturmovik Soviet ground attack planes in perfect condition. Also exhibits on the local mining industry and a wonderful photo exhibit by a local woman in the early 20th Century. Worth at least two hours here.

We spent one rainy morning here and it was great. We learned so much about the history of the area and in particular during WWII which was really very interesting. We learned a lot from this and our two kids enjoyed it too.

Very interesting. The museum had a large section devoted to the history of Kirkenes in the second world war and it's importance as a result of it's strategic location; a Sami section, an area about mining in the locality, and a section reserved for exhibits of a local artist. We found the museum very Interesting.

An interesting place to visit. There is so much tragic history that we in other parts of the world don’t know about. Highly recommended.
