Museum sights in Kristiansund

Handelshuset, formerly a lively place serving traditional food, seems to have been overcome by the general cultural languor. Its magnificent vintage jukebox, with old 45rpm hits by Presley, the Stones, the Beach Boys and other distant icons, may have played its last platter unless someone gets around to repairing it. But you can still browse among Handelshuset’s old posters and signs, learn something of Kristiansund’s commercial history and drink the freshest coffee, roasted on Norway’s oldest operational coffee roaster.
The Norwegian Klippfish museum, in the 1749 Milnbrygga warehouse on Gomalandet peninsula, presents the 300-year history of the dried-cod export industry in Kristiansund and continues to produce modest quantities of klippfisk (salted cod) in the traditional way. From the town centre, take the Sundbåt ferry and ask to be dropped off.
