Two, turn-of-century wooden ships modified to stand the rigors of sailing in arctic (and Antarctic) ice. Both lovingly restored and housed in buildings designed to display them. Excellent history and chronology of Norwegian explorers, notably Roald Amundsen.

The best you can do is searching for a hotel in the city center in the price class that fits your economy. There are lots of hotels and also some hostels and B&B.
