Attraction details
Owner description: The oldest house in Tromso, built as a custom's station in 1789, surrounded by smaller houses. The foundations are the remnants of mediaeval fortifications, possibly from the 13th c., which today appear as a small park. Café in the summer.

“Northern lights festival”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

We saw a lunchtime here as part of the Northern lights festival. the music was great and entry was free. Slightly odd arrangement - feels like sitting in a parlour rather than a concert venue.

“Dull”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

Actually it's a very interesting place, but they could have done so much more out of it......
Seems to be just a couple of old buildings but no activity, no information about the place and no guiding.
Dull!
Near to the Polar Musem, go there instead!

“Old Tromsø”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

This is worth a visit if you are in the area of the Polarimuseum, old houses with exciting food. Nice to sit outside when good weather.
