Fodor's Expert Review North Pole Expedition Museum


This museum presents the history of expeditions to the North Pole that started from Svalbard, namely the story of three airships: America (1906–09), Norge (1926), and Italia (1928). It also documents the search-and-rescue expeditions that caused Roald Amundsen and others to lose their lives. Kids love the models ships, airplanes, and airships on display and may pester you to get one of their own in the museum shop.
