Fodor's Review

Inside a customs warehouse from 1830, Polarmuseet documents the history of the polar regions. There are exhibitions on wintering in the Arctic, trapping, Arctic seal hunting, and on famous Norwegian polar explorers like Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen. Part of the University of Tromsø, the museum opened in 1978, on the 50th anniversary of Amundsen leaving Tromsø for the last time, in search of his explorer colleague Umberto Nobile.
