Overview

Discover exiting stories of risky Arctic trapping and sea mammal hunting as well as courageous Polar explorers!

Following its establishment as the “Gateway to the Arctic” in the late 19th century, Tromsø became a base for many polar expeditions. The Polar Museum preserves and conveys stories related to this aspect of the history of Tromsø and the Arctic. The Polar Museum’s permanent exhibitions deal with sealing, overwintering trapping, the stories of famous trappers such as Henry Rudi and Wanny Wolstad, the expeditions of Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen. Lovely situated in an 1830s warehouse on the seafront. Museum shop.
