Perspektivet Museum is located in one of the city’s most elegant wooden houses, built in 1838 by merchant Daniel Mack. From 1911-2001, the building served as Folkets Hus (People’s House), in the true sense of the word. Here, everything from union meetings to senior citizens exercise groups, banquets and rock concerts took place. Virtually all of Tromsø city’s history can be told with a starting point in the old, listed neoclassical estate.

We have brought out some of the most important events and colourful personalities that can be tied to the long history of this house.
