The museum reopened in its new building in June 2017 and is located on the harbour of Honningsvåg, right in-between the docking harbour for international cruise ships and the local fishing boats.
The North Cape Museum is a local heritage museum which presents the local history from the Stone Age to modern times. The permanent exhibition goes over two floors and focuses on the development of the local society in an international context. The various themes in our permanent exhibition touches upon several topics, such as the destruction of Honningsvåg and Finnmark during WW II and the reconstruction of the town during the late 40's and the early 50's.
In addition to our permanent exhibition, the museum regularly holds art exhibitions and also displays art projects produced by children in the local schools and community.
