New muse­um in Lon­gye­ar­by­en: Sval­bard Air­s­hip Muse­um will open on 15 Novem­ber

After a long time with a lot of work, the Sval­bard Air­s­hip Muse­um will open its doors on 15 Novem­ber. It is dediac­ted to the air­s­hip exped­ti­ti­ons that were laun­ched in Virgo­ham­na (1906-09) and Ny Åle­sund to reach the North Pole. The new muse­um is loca­ted in the for­mer cow­s­hed (whe­re the Sval­bard­mu­se­um was until a few years ago).

The famous air­s­hip mast near Ny Åle­sund under con­struc­tion in 1926. It was used by Roald Amund­sen to launch the Nor­ge and to years later again during Umber­to Nobile’s Ita­lia-expe­di­ti­on.
