The Polar Museum

A beautiful red-stained wooden building raised on stilts above the harbor is the picturesque home to the city's Polar Museum.

Whaling and seal hunting may be controversial today, but they were once the bedrock of the regional economy, and this museum takes an honest look at the practice.

In addition to hunting, polar exploration is covered with an interesting look at Nansen's attempt to reach the North Pole.
