There is always something exciting going on at our museums. This week there will be an exhibition opening and several talks.
New exhibition at Bø museum
On Tuesday 4 October there is the opening of a brand new exhibition at Bø Museum. The exhibition is all about poop. Yes, you read that right!
Poop – The portal to the past is an exhibition that is about poop and what the poop can tell us. The poop is a gossip who only with his mere presence says something about where you have the poop, who has the poop and often you can see what has been eaten. For example, what do you think the grouse has eaten when the poop is blue?
Historian Johan Borgos is coming to Bø Museum on 6 October to talk about our coastal culture. He says the following about the lecture: “Bø has a rich history and was previously not a little brother in the Vesterålen’s family. The lecture Fishermen farmers and fishing villages in Bø aims to show the diversity of the Bø community and tell about the coastal culture in the area, perhaps with a little jab at tourism.” Read about the event here.
Experience the history of Bø through objects and exhibitions, coastal culture and the authorship of Regine Normann, boathouse and rorbu. Fairytale forest for children. Artscape Nordland and outdoor gallery nearby. Museum gift shop. The man from the sea and the open-air gallery. Museum shop.

Eddie was born somewhere on Sotra outside Bergen, most likely in late summer 2022.
She was found after her mother was hit and taken home to a family in Sotra. She stayed there for several months before taking the long flight up to us at the Lofoten Aquarium at the end of January 2023.
