The statue is cute, but the history of the dog Bamse is fun to know about. He was in the Norwegian Navy during WWII and was a beloved animal by everyone. He did some cool things too. You can read about him online, just Google his name. Then, when you get off a cruise ship you'll be dropped next to a souvenir store - he is right in front of it. A 2 minute picture that will mean nothing to you if you haven't read a half page summary of him. It will mean more if you have.

Come from Scotland so wanted to see Bamse statue here after seeing the one in Montrose. The book actually inspired us to book a trip to Northern Norway! Great souvenir shop behind statue. Great town to have a walk around

We got off the cruise ship and there is Bamse, right in front of the gift shop, complete with a board for you to read to history of a very special St Bernard. The statue is life size, I'd say and has a very moving story. Yes, it's "just a statue", but I'd say the history and story are what make "him" so special and endearing. Great photo op.
