Trip Planner: Europe / Norway / Northern Norway / Troms / Tromso / Tromsø Museum – Universitetsmuseet
At Tromsø Museum – Universitetsmuseet, discover the archeology, geology, and zoology of the region. The site also reveals church art and the traditional and modern life of Sami, an indigenous Finno-Ugric people. The well-displayed and informative exhibits educate visitors about the consequences of global warming and the role of fire. Check out the replica of a "terrella" or "northern lights machine"--an early invention which creates the sense of the aurora borealis on a miniature scale. Look for the traditional Sami sod house in the garden, and stop by the gift shop for a selection of books about the aurora borealis. The museum also houses a small display on the Vikings. Put Tromsø Museum – Universitetsmuseet and other Tromso attractions into our Tromso travel planning website, and watch your holiday take shape.
Tromsø Museum – Universitetsmuseet reviews
Interesting museum. Offers a lot of information about the history of Norway, as well as the animal world. However, it is manageable and a bit small. more »
Well worth for the Sami exhibition and it's book shop. The multilingual language room and video about the northern lights were very interesting and informative too. I even saw some Welsh! more »
Great exhibition. Lots of interesting and interactive displays. Covers geology and natural history . Comprehensive and easily reached on a 37 bus
Interesting Sami culture pieces. Informative section on the Aurora. Loved the black and white photo exhibit and was curious about the propaganda posters! Recommend!
