Reasonable price (about $5)for entrance but they only take local currency and credit cards. That kept us from buying some small souvenirs. Would have been 5 Star if they took more currencies. I hope that they consider taking the most popular tourist currencies. Simple history...More

A really interesting museum. The first floor dedicated to barrel making and cod liver oil, and an upper floor with excellent model boats and fishing information.

Fantastic displays that also include a restored bankline vessel. Could have done more with explanations but it was such an authentic experience

We loved this Museum. Wonderful 2 story building with great photos and displays about the history of fishing in Norway. Very interesting. And for those who only speak English they have easy to read/follow booklets that describes everything in English.

There are many interesting old pictures and equipment used in fish processing. However, since none of it was explained in English, I learned almost nothing while here.

We went to the Fisheries Museum in Alesund. It was really interesting though not all of the displays had English translations. It was very informative and had some great displays. The views along the waterfront were really pretty too.
