  • Cool little gem. WWII history, Sami culture, town life/ history, iron ore mining, etc. Free WiFi and a really nice cafe and well stocked souvenir shop. Worth the trip if you only have time to do 1 thing in town.
  • For a small town like Kirkenes this museum truly worth a visit. There are two floors of exhibitions and almost item on display has translations into German, Russian, Finnish, English and even Chinese. The IL-2 is definitely the best thing in the museum. Overall I give 5/5
