Wonderful selection of work that shows the European influences of styles, then the northern interpretations. Right across from tourist office and very near all of the activity pick up places.

In a very short notice you learn about the Nordic area. Very nice, very easy and they give you the idea you really learned something. Really something you have to do when you visit Tromsø.

I loved this art gallery. It has some stunning landscapes of Norway, and also some fascinating Sami embroidered art that tells stories. Admission is free, and when I went there were few other visitors, so you can meander around and take your time enjoying the...More

Like everything in Tromso, the museum is small. The collection focuses on Norwegian artists and Norwegian themes, and thus is educational as well as beautiful. It is organized in a fairly unique way that encourages the visitor to think about the art differently. Also, just...More

Tromso is an expensive place to visit so we were excited to find an activity that was free. The museum is small but it's excellent and I would definitely recommend popping in for a quick visit. I think it only took us 30 - 45...More

Just to kill some time we went to this art museum close to our hotel and finished in less than 1hr . There is free coffee/tea and few colouring pens and papers for kids to engage with.
