Fodor's Expert Review Gjenreisningsmuseet for Finnmark og Nord-Troms

Hammerfest Museum/Gallery

Although it covers the county of Finnmark's history since the Stone Age, this museum primarily focuses on World War II, when the German army burned the community to the ground as part of a scorched-earth policy. Through photographs, videos, and sound effects, the museum recounts the residents' struggle to rebuild their lives. The interesting exhibit includes dwellings that were built inside caves after the town was evacuated.
