The life boat exhibit was the best point of interest to us. Be sure to get inside the lifeboat and see what it felt like to be in that situation. The museum was full of interesting facts about Aalesund.

This was a nice and charming museum with good information about Aslesund. They had guides on each floor for multiple languages to read as you walked through. I enjoyed the museum.

A small museum with good presentation of material from ancient times to World War II. One can learn about the history of the town; especially the rebuilding after the war.

Guiding today, between the rain & the sun, I was able to guide in Ålesund Museum, but only outside, great views & good information. Both from World War II & development of Ålesund from1825.

Another day and another fab museum to wander about with easy access. The port is very close to the town if you are on a cruise. Take time to take a tour as the roads are amazing hairpin bends.
