  • "Borderland Museum" is the official name of the Varanger Museum Museum of IKS avd Sør-Varanger. It is located on the shores of Lake Fërstevann at the entrance to the city. Great Village Museum, a large spacious building, cafe, wardrobe, shop with magnets (50 EEK), Silver 3 knives, mugs, postcards, books on local art, Northern nature. Consists of one hall devoted to war, second floor with a funny and another exposition Hall with the works of local artist John Andreas Savio. A nice little Museum, in which you want to add exhibits. Lovers of large museums like the Hermitage and Russian Museum, visit the Border do not advise, avoid big disappointments. Entry 50 CZK, children up to 16 years free pensioners, students, groups of more than 10 persons-40 kroons. Huge lobby with grand piano, tables and benches is suitable for conferences, concerts, gala events.
