Nice little museum detailing the history of the region and the ravages of WWII to the area. Won't take long to go through, so worth a stop if your cruise ship stops in Honningsvag or if you're on your way to Nordkapp.

The North Cape itself is a geographical feature but how it has helped shape the people who live there, and its significance during World War II, need to be explained. This museum does both in an easily assimilated way. The exhibits have bilingual Norwegian and...More

This small museum (2 floors) is devoted to the history of the town of Honningsvåg (and North Cape area) where it is located, including the fishing industry and the World War II German occupation. Almost all of the photos and exhibits have an English description...More

This is a wonderful gem of a museum. Particularly interesting are the WWII exhibits and the small films that are continually showing in one of the side rooms. Many of the exhibits are very moving, detailing the plight of regular people in Norway during WWII....More

The 34 km drive from Honningsvag to Nordkapp is scenic. Sit on the right side of the bus for best views - and in the first row, if you can. Wait for crowds to clear the area around the globe and the Mother and Child...More

The museum gives an introduction to the story and history of northernmost part of Europe. The way of life and the devastation after the Second World War.
