If you are into contemporary art, this exhibition is for you. It has artwork from all Nordic countries, which, coming from another Nordic country, is fascinating. It is also nice that there is no entrance fee.

The new museum director is really ambitious and very happy that both locals and tourists are visiting the exhibition that presents Sami art (until April 2017). I look forward to explore the upcoming program and was impressed by the diverse media and inspiring works of art represented - in addition to the representation that really impressed me!

I visited the museum on a snowy afternoon and found that it had been converted for a period into a display devoted entirely to the Sami people and culture of northern Scandinavia. This was very rewarding and well-presented with some gorgeous paintings, glassware and textiles on display. There may not (apparently) be a word for 'art' in Sami culture but... More

At the moment the gallery is dedicated to Sami art which is fascinating. Unfortunately all the other Norwegian Art has been put away.

It was disappointing to be immobile in Tromso for four days in December, when we should have been sailing on a 50th anniversary trip on the Hurtigruten up to Kirkenes, near the border with Russia. We first did this voyage over Christmas and New Year 1966/67! And it made cruise-lovers of us for ever after ..... Until last month when... More

Thank you so much for a very thorough and positive review. We're very happy to have made your unplanned stay a little bit better. By the way, I think the picture you are thinking of is "The Battle of Stanford Bridge" by Peter Nicolai Arbo (https://www.wikiart.org/en/peter-nicolai-arbo/battle-of-stamford-bridge-1870). The battle is seen as the end of the Viking era in Great Britain,... More
