  • The Museum is recommended only for those interested in the history above all of the 2nd World War. Are there information in other languages than Norwegian, but too little prepared. The highlight is a Soviet combat aircraft from the 2.Weltkrieg.

  • An interesting Museum, where you learn how to live on the border territories during World War 2. The most interesting museum exhibit-a Soviet plane raised from the bottom of the Lake and restored. You can read and listen to the soul takers history local resident from childhood about how Germans arrived and about 140,000 of them in evacuation, while the region decided to burn and wiped off the face of the Earth. On the second floor there are unexplained exposition of modernity, the history where you learn about indigenous peoples and their tools, Hall, telling about the mining production in Kirkenes and another exhibition with paintings by local artist. Also in the Museum is a good souvenir shop, cafeteria. And most importantly-inside heat. Entry 50 CZK. Go from the Centre on foot minutes 15-20.
