  • This museum is part of the highlights of Svolvær, see even some tonight. You can go there without hesitation! It should be noted that it is a small museum with a private collection. Its owner was welcomed, and we explained having spent his life (and his money) to collect the items and stories that can be admired. A real history buff. And if the Museum is small in size, it is darn provided! Yet accustomed to such places, we were very surprised by the quantity and diversity of the objects it contains. Very clear explanations are given on small posters, always in English, sometimes in french. You come out both impressed and well obviously affected by the horrors experienced by the Norwegians during the 2nd World War. Price: 100 NOK (discount if you land of a Hurtigruten) hours: 6.30 pm - 10 pm, but also opened earlier in the day, until 16: 00. Do not hesitate to call the owner at 918-30-328, he will tell you (in English) about schedules.

  • Svolvaer accommodation I have had the opportunity to visit this small museum located in the building where settled Germans when invaded the area. They were collected over the years various memorabilia from Sir William, who gave an eloquent introduction in English. There are uniforms, flags, photos, articles, medals, motorcycles, various material such as medical and dental kits, even the balls to decorate the Christmas tree that were used by German soldiers. Even in a shrine houses a small painting (and some drawings) they would like author Hitler himself. For who is "kidnapped" by history, a visit is a must.

  • Very interesting collection of war memorabilia. Pictures painted by Hitler himsef and a scarey Gestapo office.
  • Superb collection of all kind of military objects dating from the second world war for the most part.

  • Private museum of the World War 1939-45. Very great collection. Have visited the Museum on several occasions and it is equally exciting to go there every time. Always something new to see. It is recommended to anyone who has the interest of history or the second world war.
