The Polar Museum (Polarmuseet) is located a couple of minutes walk north of Tromsø center, in old but well maintained buildings. As the name implies it covers the activities in the arctic areas, such as expeditions, hunting etc. The exhibition is suprisingly large considering the somewhat cramped area available, is well laid out, but often only with Norwegian explanations. An English translation is presumebly available on loan, but I cannot comment on this as I haven't seen it. Anyway, English labels should be incorporated in the exhibition itself. However, the exhibition is quite interesting, and is recommended to Tromsø visitiors interested in the arctic.
