A great deal of information can be found in this museum. Although much of the text is in Norwegian, there are 'prompt sheets' in various languages located around the build. Well worth a visit

This museum tells the story about Hammerfest and it's reconstruction after the 2nd world war. They have a interesting collection of photo's and video's about the nazi occupation. Certainly worth a visit.

I enjoyed this museum and the interactive installations. The history of Hammerfest and its rebuilding is very interesting - particularly the construction of homes.

This museum is excellent, it shows what happened to Hammerfest during WWII and how it was rebuilt. The original film footage is very moving and shows how strong the community and Norweigens are. Definitely worth a visit.
