After reading reviews I wanted to visit the museum on my coastal voyage. However it is closed for improvements. Just anted to advise others. However I was able to visit a great little tourist shop with an upstairs Christmas shop.

Very interesting history of the Nazi occupation and burning of all but the old church we we had to visit after that!

The museum focuses on the North Cape but also the small town of Honningsvag and its history with a focus in one room on the Nazi German Occupation during the latter part of which the entire population of the area was evacuated by compulsion and the town was raised to the ground to deny the approaching Soviet army any succour....

As we parked to the "visitor parking place" and planned to visit the museum, an angry woman ran from inside and chased us away ("you cannot park here!"). We did not try to visit the museum or the docks again.

Although this is not a large museum, it is packed with very information displays -- history, people of area, fish in area and of course, Bambse the Norwegian St. Bernard Navy WW2 mascot.

The main focus was the... More

Museum is located on northernmost point in Norway. It is extremely well presented and definitely worth the visit. You have to take bus from town or private transport to visit. Weather is big factor here. Can be very foggy/overcast. If this is the case cannot see much of landscape but can visit the museum.

During a Hurtigruten cruise with The Big journey Company we stopped at this pretty and interesting little town. Coming from an idyllic English market town I had wondered why one would live in a remote location like this.....BUT after my visit to this fascinating and well presented museum I realised that after being raised to the ground, local people had...
