North Cape Museum
For such a small and out-of-the-way town, Honningsvåg has a fascinating tale to tell. The compact but compelling museum chronicles the history of this remote corner of the Norwegian arctic, from the development of the fishing industry to the German occupation and the town's subsequent destruction during World War II. Exhibits show how the resilient local residents rebuilt their community after the wartime devastation. Other displays showcase model ships, the nearby bird sanctuary and the North Cape itself.
