What to do with an afternoon in Spitsbergen

We are arriving in Spitsbergern on June 15, 2011 aboard the Ocean Princess at 1:30 P.M. and are leaving at 6:30. Any info as to how best spend these few hours while in Spitsbergen will be greatly appreciated.

The Svalbard Museum is worth a visit. Alternatively you can stroll through the main street from the Radisson to the Spitzbergen Hotel and back again. There are a couple of shops and a few bars to call in at on the way.

There is also an Airship Museum - but as I've not been to this I can't comment on whether this is worthwhile or not !
