ØKSNES – FISHING FROM THE STONE AGE TO PRESENT DAY

The Øksnes of today emerges as a high-tech fishing village, based
on several thousand years of experience. Fishing has been going on
in Øksnes since the Stone Age. With the help of archeological finds
and sites, together with written sources, we can follow
developments in the fishing villages from the Stone Age to the
present. The museum also offers:
• Guided tours in Alsvåggården – the old farm house, the old shop
and the museum exhibition halls
• Sale of coffee in the farm house
• Sale of books, sweets, toys and more in the old shopking demonstrations in a fire pit.
