Reviewed 27 March 2014

You get so used to travelling on modern cruise ships it takes a visit to somewhere like the Hurtigruten museum to realise how ships have changed in the past fifty years. Being of an age that had travelled by ship some 50 years ago I had forgotten that tables used to have little lips around them to stop the cutlery falling from them in rough seas and easy wipe surfaces everywhere on the expectation that things would be spilt. As we were travelling on a Hurtigruten ship we had free entry to the museum. Without it we probably wouldn't have gone in but we would have missed a gem.

Like others we visited the museum free as part of a Hurtigruten Classic Voyage Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen, this month (March 2014). Excellent range of ship models. The actual ship alongside was covered in protection resembling corrugated iron, so very unattractive, and we lacked time to go on board anyway.

We visited the museum on our way South on the Kirkenes - Bergen voyage. Having been onboard a Hurtigruten ship and experienced their hospitality and purpose, it was excellent to see the growth of the organisation from it's inception to the current fleet of ships. Definitely worth a visit. Entrance was free to people on the voyage. How did they get that ship to dry land for the exhibition.

Considering we were on a Hurtigruten cruise in search of the Northern Lights, it was a given that we would also visit the Hurtigruten Museum. Entrance is free to Hurtigruten's passengers - which was a bonus!
It was amazing to read about and see how it all started and to view the various displays some of the beautiful old dinner services, cutlery, glasses, uniforms, cabins etc - the 'then and now'

Very informative and pleased we had a chance to wander round

Extremely interesting museum and especially as it has the original ship attached to it. How wierd it was to wander around this old ship and see how they really were - so much better that pictures. Only downside was it was freezing cold on the old ship. rest of museum was great sorry I didn't have enough time
