The Polar Museum

The Polar Museum tells the exciting story of risky Arctic trapping and courageous polar expeditions. Located in former Customs House on the quayside dating from 1830

The Polar Museum in Tromsø opened on June 18, 1978, 50 years to the day after Roald Amundsen left Tromsø on his last expedition, to search for Umberto Mobile and the airship ”Italy”. The museum is situated in an historic Customs warehouse, which dates back to 1830 and has an idyllic location on the waterfront in the historic Skansen area.
