Co-founded by an Italian Stefano Poli and a Norwegian Ingunn Loyning, the stunningly remarkable Spitsbergen Airship Museum has documented the long history of aviation in modern Svalbard. This museum tells the story of polar exploration, mostly from around Svalbard using grand original artefacts, original newspapers and other documents.

The beginning of 20th century saw a lot of attempts by aviation pioneers to reach the North Pole. The museum, which was set up in November 2008, has made an attempt to tell the heroic accounts of three major expeditions of the airships which are:

  • The AMERICA in 1906, 1907 & 1909
  • The NORGE in 1926
  • The ITALIA in 1928

A lot of misinformation and arguments have surrounded these expeditions. The museum, through its collection of old films, photos, maps, newspapers, postcards, drawings, original artifacts, clothes and more, has attempted to communicate with the people what actually happened. The museum takes all its visitors on a fantastic and surprising trip about the history of big explorers and scientists. Spitsbergen Airship museum is a historic account of great ambitions. The Airship-shop (gift shop) sells old and new books and souvenirs.
