Hurtigruten Museum, Stokmarknes, Nordland, Norway
For more than 100 years, Hurtigruten has been an integral part of life in northern Norway, tying cities and communities together, carrying goods and people over the nations number one highway: The ocean. The Hurtigruten Museum has found its natural location in Stokmarknes, the very city where founder of Hurtigruten, Richard With, lived and worked.
The Hurtigruten Museum offers a journey through changing times, and lets you see these mighty ships from different sides: from mail and stateroom, through loading and unloading, safety and navigation.
The landlocked Hurtigruten ship M/S Finnmarken (1956) is the worlds biggest museum artefact, and is open to visitors all year round during business hours. Visit this classic ship, with its stately interior and rich history.
