Fodor's Expert Review Galleri Svalbard

Svalbard Historical

If the weather is frosty, head to this popular gallery. One of Norway's most admired artists, Kåre Tveter, donated 40 illustrations to this collection. The "Arctic Light Over Svalbard" slide show is an eye-opening look at what makes this area special. Centuries-old maps and books fill an adjacent exhibition room, and copies of many can be purchased in the unique gift shop.
