The Pomor Museum is a new department within the main branch of the Vardø Museums, which earlier was comprised of Lushaugen (town history collection), the Partisan Museum in Kiberg and the fishing vessel Einar II from 1936. In this museum, one learns more about who the Pomors were. In addition, one gains an awareness of the Pomorian trade that took place between Norway and Russia, something which was vital for the northern inhabitants.

The Pomor Museum is located in the largest warehouse, 'Storsjåen'. The exhibition is divided into two parts
the first section deals with the Pomors and their daily livelihood, while the other section focuses on the contact between Norway and Russia, starting at the end of the 17th century and until today. Through text, images and objects, visitors gain insight to the Pomorian trading history in Northern Norway.
