Old tourist information centre about polar bears. Interesting fact is that. There are no Polar bears in Hammerfest. However there are lots of reindeers.

Very interesting exhibition by the tourist information of Hammerfest. The staff is multilingual and very nice. We enjoyed our stay there very much. The thing you got to do is either become a regular member of the society for a couple of bucks or become a honorable member with a very nice ceremony :-) you will get a certificate either way and a polarbear pin. And you are invited to the society meeting once a year in January ;-) All in all a cool visit at this place.
