We visited the Hurtigruten Museum during a stop on the ship at Stokmarknes, Norway. The ship only stops for a short time so when one is on the Hurtigruten ship you have to be careful of your time during the stop. There is time enough to visit the museum during the stop if you go directly to the museum which... More

We visited the museum during a Hurtigruten cruise. Because of this we only had an hour and we could have easily spent that looking at the boat models inside the museum and then another hour or more really looking at MS Finnmarken which was fascinating. It's not the museum's fault but it would be nice if Hurtigruten allowed more time... More

We visited on a routine stop of the southbound ferry. We only had a short time to see the museum. The old ship was interesting. There was a German couple on our ship who had actually cruised on the Finnmarken 35 years ago. That made our tour more interesting. The museum and the history of the coastal ferries were worth...

Thank you for your visit. I quite agree that there is not sufficient time if you want to look further into the different stories about the Hurtigruten. However, we think that you may get an overall view and enjoy some details too.Therefore we are glad that you found the museum and ship interesting. We also hope there will be a... More

We visited the Hurtigruten Museum during a portcall while beeing on a trip with the MS Nordnorge (southbound). It was a great experience with informative and interesting facts about the founder and the history of Hurtigruten. Also you get to see the old (date of construction: 1956) drydocked MS Finnmarken where you get the feeling from the old days.

Fascinating to see the 4 decks of the old vessel and compare with the level of comfort on the 7 decks of the modern Hurtigruten ships. Cleaning up the upper deck and handing out a leaflet or placing some information boards would do more justice to the Finnmarken. The museum has several interesting scale models.

The museum itself is interesting but we got really deceived by the MS Finmarke. You can visit the boat, but you will get has no explanation or even sign at all, you can just go around but it is getting old and there isn't anything done to refresh it. It feels like they just dropped it there and opened the... More

Thanks for your reaction! I can assure you that we really try to make the ship better. Lots of work have been done with the ship since we put her on land in 1999. Now we have plans to build a big house over the whole ship and also a house for the section of the SS Finmarken 1912. Things... More

Sadly we have just a very short time to visit, 30 minutes, which is a common problem when taking the coastal cruise with Hurtigruten. However we made the most of it, running through the dry docked ship and then rushing through the rest of the museum. It is well laid out and there is an interesting film of the engine... More

The cost of the entrance ticket was 50 NOK and it is possible to buy it onboard if you are travelling on the Hurtigruten ship. The artifacts relating to the generation of a coastal service along the west coast of Norway were well documented and this was well worth the entrance fee. There was also a museum relating to the...
