    Having just posted interior views of the 1956 Finnmarken as seen as a museum ship at Stokmarknes, in that ships own thread, I thought I would add here some images of her in relation to her surroundings. The photographs were all taken in 2003, during two short visits.


    A first view of Finnmarken when arriving at Stokmarknes by the southbound hurtigrute . . .


    . . . and as seen from the higher decks of Trollfjord a few months later that same year.


    Those intent on visiting the museum hurry off, for there is not very much time to spare . . .


    . . . while a few other passengers are content just to linger on the quay. Perhaps they are less aware of the significance of the man commemorated here:


    Richard With.

      The museum gets 20 million NOK in support!

      http://www.nrk.no/nyheter/distrikt/nordland/1.6498623



      Nordland County wants to support the museum with 20 million NOK as long as the Government of Norway, pays the other 60 million NOK.

        A ship out of water can seem both fascinating and disturbing at the same time . . .


        . . .especially when one has arrived on the traditional ship Lofoten, here seen from the unnaturally lofty deck of Finnmarken.



        Finnmarken, the funnel in VDS colours, and the newest generation of hurtigrute, Trollfjord, then TFDS.



        Hurtigrutens Hus



        Panorama of the town of Stokmarknes, which I have yet to explore. Perhaps on a future visit I will stay over, and spend a longer time in the museum, for as well as Finnmarken there are many fascinating exhibits to view.

          Well what an amazing coincidence – there I was in the process of posting photos of the museum which I had suddenly thought of doing this weekend, when I read this news. But I suppose we should wait to assess the reaction of the government before cheering too loudly.

              NRK news report about a water leak on board the Finnmarken's Captains Cabin and an interview with her Captain, published on the NRK website.

              http://www1.nrk.no/nett-tv/distrikt/...ge/verdi/97047

              It is noted on Hurtigrute Museum website that this leak has now been repaired and the work bringing the Captains Cabin back to its original glory is well underway.

                  I heard this on the radio today: great news if it eventually materializes.

                    While they in Oslo got a really expensive Opera house built and a brand new ski jump at Holmenkollen, they now want to have a brand new National Gallery built at Aker Brygge as well.... at the cost of 2 billion kroner!

                    But in Stokmarknes, they can't even get a cent to build a roof over the coastal steamer museum??

                    Anyone else see the injustice here? >> <<

                      Harald Jarl has some problems posting, so 'm posting this on her behalf:

                      As previously stated (quoted from the news), the county of Nordland and the communities in Vesterålen had committed to certain amounts for the museum if (IF) the government pitched in with an even larger amount – obviously fooled by the politicians retoric.

                      Yeah, and so our dreams were shattered AGAIN: Heard on the North-Norway news today that our state budget for next year DID NOT contain the “promised” amount for the museum.

                      Bummers. Well, what else is new? This has happened over and over again: Museums for old agricultural history and steam trains and whatever, are well taken care of – because they portray the culture of the central south where the power center is located (not far from the capital).

                      Coastal culture and fishery have historically always been left in the cold. This makes me sooo mad!

                      Now the museum of “Coastal Highway No 1” is again put on hold, maybe the politicians gamble is to keep doing that until FINNMARKEN is beyond repair.

                      Read a quote somewhere from a Swedish reporter: “ONLY Norwegians would get the idea to starve and discontinue their internationally most attractive tourist phenomenon Hurtigruten”.

                      So it is. Maybe it is time we and all other seafaring creatures show up on the steps of STORTINGET…

                        I hadn't really looked at this thread before.
                        One question; how did they get her up there?

                          Via the Huritgruten Museum's website, there is a link to a shop selling information CD's about some of the HRG ships:

                            Hurtigrutens Hus anno 1996

                            Looking in my old photo-albums this morning, I came over a couple of interesting images dated BEFORE the new HURTIGRUTEN MUSEUM in Stokmarknes was built. And when FINNMARKEN was moored, but still floating.

                            This visit to the former HURTIGRUTENS HUS was dated July 2. 1996

                            MS NARVIK in Stokmarknes together with the moored FINNMARKEN




                            Richard With himself. The "father to all our fun" is looking out to the moored FINNMARKEN" I wonder what he thinks about the plans of bringing a ship on land..........

                            There she is. Waiting to be taken out of her element. The date is July 2. 1996


                            This small red house was the museum before the new one was built. It was called HURTIGRUTENS HUS. And I remember there was very narrow spaces inside. And that the school-girls who worked as guides was not able to answer all my details-questions. I think I was a quite troublesome guest........

                              This is absolutely brilliant and valuable archive material. Great that you are looking through your old photo albums . I’m sure there are many more treasures there.

                              I’m SO glad those distracting Winter Olympics are over – we’ve got our HurtigruteMartin back!!!!!!!!!!!!!
