The Finnmark Exhibition

The Exhibition tell the story of World War II in Finnmark, of the forced evacuation and the scorching, of the return and the reconstruction after the war – and of every day life on the 1950s.

In the house from Olderfjord we tell the story of the family who lived here in 1956, about the rebuilding of Finnmark after World War II and about daily life in the post war years.
