We stopped here during a recent cruise. Murmansk is the largest city situated above the Arctic Circle. It was dubbed "The City of Heroes" following WW ll when it withstood more then 3 years of attacks from Nazi forces. There are several highlights worthy of...More

Small and old local museum. But quality is very fine. You can see what is Arctic. But there's no English guide. You have to google the Russian to know what do these means.

Most museums have translations in more than the native language. This does not. Many exhibits on several floors, a few of which are well displayed. The taxidermy section is old and poorly done. Actually, for me that is a good thing. I hate to see...More

The historical museum is divided in several sections, history, nature, economy, period 1940-1944, Saami, marine, navy and so on. With 17 exposition halls it is not to big and give a nice impression about the role of Murmansk and Kola Peninsula. Let us guide you...More

Spent a good couple of hours there on Sunday afternoon. There are lots of stairs to climb (as seems to be the case in lots of places in Murmansk), but as each floor has interesting things to see I was happy enough to wheeze up...More

This is a very informative museum. We had an english speaking guide - so that made it easier to go through the important exhibits. It is worth a visit to know more about the region and also about Russian history. Learned a lot about Kola,...More
