I am used to much larger museums with much better displays but if you truly want some background on the area it is worth a visit. It is relatively cheap to get in too!

The museum tells the history of Longyearbyen and Svalbard. And most interesting: you can see all the animals you hope to see in nature.

It's a small museum but it packs in a lot of interesting information in a small area. Well worth a visit.

Take a couple of hours and read all of the displays as they are uniformly interesting. The displays are very nice. All in all, a must-see.
