We have built, renovated, polished, created new exhibitions and developed new ideas. We have worked hard to create a unique arena for dissemination of history. We’re finally ready to open! MS Finnmarken got its protection, Museum Nord has got a fantastic arena to convey the history in, Stokmarknes, Vesterålen, Northern-Norway – yes, Norway has got its Hurtigruten Museum!
