Part of touring is experiencing how others live - their food, music, art and history. The photos and exhibits do a wonderful job telling the story of Norwegian life during the war and their future. I was very impressed with this jewel box of a...More

The surrounding are incredible and there is lot to see and feel. Inside the museum and the shop the atmosphere is touristy and unfriendly. Try going in with a little dog and you get first hand experience of the Norwegian unfriendliness... Not a good vibe...More

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.

We arrived at 11.15 am and it was still pretty dark. After looking around the town we returned to the ship and stopped to look in the museum as it was close to the dock. It cost 50NKR per person entry fee. There is a...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
