“Nordnorsk art”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Best thing was free entry. The paintings were quite dark and depressing (my opinion). But my wife likes them.

“Landscapes of northern Norway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Paintings by Norwegian artists and others of Nordic landscapes, including seascapes, are the main permanent feature. I usually don't enjoy art museums but thought this one was pretty good.

The current temporary exhibit is woodblock prints by a Sami artist.

This museum is so good, covering several floors, we were surprised it was free. It is an easy walk from the Hurtigruten dock, less than 10 minutes.

They have a coffee shop just inside the entrance.

“Good selection!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

The permanent collection offers a considered and varied insight into Norwegian art and arctic circle inspired pieces. With some history about particular art movements in a Norwegian context. When I visited there was also a very good exhibition on about still life painting and how it has evolved today.

“aka The Art Museum (actually gallery) of Northern Norway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

One of the best small regional art galleries I have ever seen. Lots of stunning pictures of Norwegian landscapes and aspects of society from 19thC in the permanent collection.
These artists were able to catch the particular characteristics of the northern light. The ones showing social scenes are particularly instructive.
Check the website for touring exhibitions.

“Small but interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

Nice to find a free attraction in the centre of Tromso. Helpful, friendly staff but note you need to leave bags in the lockers provided by the entrance - some of these are free, but not all. Enjoyed the Still Life in Motion exhibit.
