Galleri Svalbard

Gallery in Longyearbyen

Galleri Svalbard features the Svalbard-themed works of renowned Norwegian artist Kåre Tveter (1922–2012), so pure and cold they make you shiver, as well as works by other artists, such as Olav Storø ( It also has fascinating reproductions of antique maps of Svalbard, historical drawings with a Svalbard focus and temporary exhibitions. The gallery has a small cafe and an excellent shop.

Out the back and upstairs is the Kunstnersenteret, a collection of local art and craft outlets with items for sale.
