Description

The town museum gives exciting insight into Ålesund's history through pictures and artefacts. Explore the exhibitions of the great town fire of 1904, fisheries, regional boats and World War II, and the fantastic town model depicting Ålesund in 1898.

Aalesunds Museum is beautifully situated right in the middle of Ålesund town centre with excellent harbour view and museum park. The museum building itself is originally from 1919, and still today its distinctive character shows signs of earlier times.

Aalesunds Museum presents the town history in an exciting way through artefacts, photographs and paintings. Aalesunds Museum has got exhibitions about the Second World War, and an old country store. Study the impressive town model depicting Ålesund in the year 1898; this will give you insight into how the town looked before the devastating fire in 1904. A visit here will tell you all about the great town fire of 1904, and the reconstruction that gave Ålesund its unique place in Norwegian architectural history.

Take a walk around and explore the many exhibitions on fisheries and boats, and make a visit to the Fisheries Museum in town where you can learn more about this important part of Ålesund's history.
