Fodor's Expert Review Polarmuseet

Tromsø Museum/Gallery

Inside a customs warehouse from 1830, Polarmuseet documents the history of the polar regions. There are exhibitions on famous Norwegian polar explorers like Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen as well as the history of seal hunting and surviving in this often hostile climate. 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 missing explorer colleague Umberto Nobile.
