The life boat exhibit was the best point of interest to us. Be sure to get inside the lifeboat and see what it felt like to be in that situation. The museum was full of interesting facts about Aalesund.

This was a nice and charming museum with good information about Aslesund. They had guides on each floor for multiple languages to read as you walked through. I enjoyed the museum.
