This small museum, though not the most rich, is nevertheless vital for the records it maintains of the Pomors, the people of the White Sea, who some (including this museum) claim were the true first discoverers of Svalbard. In recent years, the museum has been a point of minor conflict between Russia and Norway; the museum was built by Russia, and is still owned by it, on territory that Norway considers sovereign. The highlights of the museum are:

  • William Barentz’s archaeological finds
  • Collections of minerals and fossils.
  • Taxidermy of polar wildlife.
  • Artwork
  • Some local coal mining history.
