This is a small museum, but jammed with information about the early history of the Cape and the days following WW II. Don't forget to check out the display about the Witch Trials of 1621 ... 30 locals were put on trial for sorcery and...More

Small Museum but offers great pictorial information about the history of the area. WW2 information is well worth a read and to view. Friendly staff and fairly cheap for what's on offer. English text available for all exhibitions.

The surrounding are incredible and there is lot to see and feel. Inside the museum and the shop the atmosphere is touristy and unfriendly. Try going in with a little dog and you get first hand experience of the Norwegian unfriendliness... Not a good vibe...More

Nice little museum detailing the history of the region and the ravages of WWII to the area. Won't take long to go through, so worth a stop if your cruise ship stops in Honningsvag or if you're on your way to Nordkapp.

This small museum (2 floors) is devoted to the history of the town of Honningsvåg (and North Cape area) where it is located, including the fishing industry and the World War II German occupation. Almost all of the photos and exhibits have an English description...More
