  • It seems that local authorities don't go down that a "foreigner" transplanted create something beautiful, in fact this beautiful Museum is little noticed and almost kept it hidden from the State structures. Instead you must see: rich and varied in materials exposed and set up artwork! To visit without reservations!

  • Take as much time as possible to savor the Museum: vintage movies only last for 2 hours. Very interesting materials exposed among black and white photographs and original documents. Is the desire to see the film the red tent and going to reread those events. Affect the destinies of some protagonists and sometimes tragic human stories that, for better or for worse events were held in those situations. Do not miss the confrontation that comes naturally between the polar equipment of that time and those of today. Daniel and Gloria di Milano

  • This is an independent Museum which tells the story of three airships, departing from Svalbard, and their flights towards the North Pole (America, Norge and Italia). Very interessting and higly recommended.
  • Worth the effort to visit it. Is a private museum which tells mostly shipments of Umberto Nobile in the discovery of the North Pole. Very interesting and well done. The Interior of the museum resembles a dirigile and for the floor were inspired by the glaciers in the area.
