The North Cape Museum in Honningsvåg has moved into its new location and will reopen with new exhibits on 14. June 2017.
The North Cape Museum is displaying works by Honningsvåg born artists Arnold Dahlslett and Bjarne Holst (1944-1993) in the new museum building.
In the fall of 1944, Finnmark and the northern parts of Troms County’s population were forcibly evacuated from their homesteads by the occupying Germany army, as their scorched earth campaign in the region was set in motion.
This exhibition explores the reasoning behind the evacuation and the Norwegian government’s response, gives voice to contemporary witnesses and vividly recounts the harrowing story of a people become refugees in their own country.
”While we wait for the next boat, supplies and freedom” is a traveling exhibition produced by The Museum of Reconstruction for Finnmark and Northern Troms.
Due to moving to a new location the museum remains closed 01.10.2015 until Summer 2016.
This summer, the North Cape Museum is proud to present the special exhibition “The World of John Savio”. It showcases the work of one of the most influential Sami artists from Norway and will be on display from the 1st of June until the 28th of September 2014.
The exhibition is on loan from the Savio Museum in Kirkenes.
