#3 of 17 in Museums in Tromso
At Tromso Museum, discover the archeology, geology, and zoology of the region. The site also reveals church art and the traditional and modern life of Sami, an indigenous Finno-Ugric people. The well-displayed and informative exhibits educate visitors about the consequences of global warming and the role of fire. Check out the replica of a "terrella" or "northern lights machine"--an early invention which creates the sense of the aurora borealis on a miniature scale. Look for the traditional Sami sod house in the garden, and stop by the gift shop for a selection of books about the aurora borealis. The museum also houses a small display on the Vikings. Put Tromso Museum and other Tromso attractions into our Tromso travel planning website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The museum provides good details about the culture, history, animals, birds etc. It could have been made more contemporary. We had to abandon our visit there half way since the fire alarm started ringing and hence entire place was evacuated. The outside ambience was very good. Lots of snow around. Snow filled trees. Quite photogenic outer ambience. Good place to visit but may be skipped of you are short of time. The other museum Polaria is much better
  • It was really great. If you have a child, it can be a great chance to feeling northern nature. It was well organized museum. There were also many living insects we can see.
