Welcome to The Museum of Reconstruction in Hammerfest

Welcome to the Gjenreisnings-museet (Reconstruction Museum) for Finnmark and Nord-Troms. Our exhibition communicates the dramatic events from WW II with forced evacuation, burning to the ground and reconstruction. Here, you can learn how the people handled the forced evacuation and cave dweller existence during the Arctic winter of 1944 - 1945. See how the inhabitants created their new homes through optimism, a strong belief in the future and hard determination. Study what happened when the multi-cultural people were exposed to Norwegianising and the ideologies of equality and modernisation.
