  • The North Cape Museum is a local cultural heritage museum which presents the history of the island of Magerøya and its population, from the Stone Age to Modern Times. We are dedicated to inform about the first settlers in the region, the daily life on the island and the reconstruction of Honningsvåg after the city was burned to the ground during the Second World War. Our permanent exhibition also covers the fishing and marine development of the region. The Museum also regularly holds temporary art exhibitions by local and international artists. -Info. From the museum-
  • Honningsvåg is a small town located in the Northern most part of the world and located in Arctic Circle, which is top of our planet Earth. About 35kms up North lies Northcape or Nordkapp the Historical landmark and tourist attraction. It's worth spending energy and visiting that place. Can be accessed by car, bicycle, bikes, bus, helicopters, etc. Just be sure in this area there is no Free Wifi unlike other cities in Norway.
  • Nice place. Top on the world.
  • Small museum but still interesting. Tells the history of Honningsvåg as a fishing village, its occupation by Nazi Germany and its rebuilding. Also some trivia about the local fishing industry. I spent about an hour there.
  • Small Museum but worth a visit for the in depth look in to survival during occupation in the Second World War.
