Fodor's Expert Review Svalbard Museum

Longyearbyen, Svalbard Museum/Gallery
This museum portrays Svalbard's 400-year history from discovery of the archipelago onward, including 17th-century whaling, the life of Norwegian trappers, and the relatively recent coal mining in Longyearbyen and the surrounding area. It's a great introduction to the archipelago, especially when you combine it with local tours and excursions.
