It was disappointing to be immobile in Tromso for four days in December, when we should have been sailing on a 50th anniversary trip on the Hurtigruten up to Kirkenes, near the border with Russia. We first did this voyage over Christmas and New Year...More

Thank you so much for a very thorough and positive review. We're very happy to have made your unplanned stay a little bit better. By the way, I think the picture you are thinking of is "The Battle of Stanford Bridge" by Peter Nicolai Arbo...More

Mostly closed for renovations. All we could see were some (quite good) marbles of human figures. Warm. Free to enter. Pleasant young man on the desk. The guide books suggest there is a lot of interesting pieces to see.

Thank you for the review and for visiting the museum. We are currently developing a new exhibition of our collection, which will open after the summer. We would be delighted to see you again in Tromsø at another time.

Nothing to see as the exhibits were being changed; check first to see if all rooms and floors are open otherwise stay away! Grim pictures and dubious sculptures.

This is a very small art museum. It has a nice collection of Nordic art, and interesting exhibits. And it's free. It's very small.

Do not miss this gallery. Definitely worth a while to spend with local art. The landscapes pictures are magnificent. It located near the center and close to cost. So right after the gallery you have possibility to se the real landscape on your own :)

This museum has a very nice permanent collection of paintings and sculpture by Norwegian and Scandinavian artists, and a rotating exhibit space that currently has a fascinating sculpture presentation.

This a free fee museum which is a good thing! We loved the choice of the temporary exhibitions! The first floor shows more traditional paintings which are very nice as well. We recommend it!
