The museums on Nordkyn provide insight into the region's turbulent history as well as contemporary trends. Art exhibitions feature local and regional painters inspired by the natural surroundings and culture from the Barents region, encompassing the northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia.
In Gamvik Museum you can discover our local history, from the first settlers who arrived shortly after the last ice-age, to the appearance of the king crab in the late 20th Century. Housed in an old fish factory facing the Barents Sea, the Museum is a truly authentic framework for the history of the fishing industry and coastal culture.
Foldalbruket was granted protected heritage status by the Directorate for Cultural Heritage in 1994. The former Foldal fish depot presents local fishing traditions, history and development. The depot also features lodging and a café.
