Development of Lofotr Viking Museum

12 May 2023

Sometimes it’s nice to get an outside look at how to start development, what are we doing well and what can be improved. Lucy Harland brings that perspective to the table at Lofotr Viking Museum.

Lofotr Viking Museum has been through quite a journey since the museum opened in 1995. Over the years, new buildings and exhibitions have been added. The museum has around 100,000 visitors annually, making it Museum Nord’s largest museum. The combination with the location at Borg and the cultural-historical backdrop makes the place and the visitor experience quite unique.

In the past week, Harland has visited Lofotr Viking Museum, talked to employees, made inspections and conducted a workshop with us, as part of the process of how we can develop the museum further.

Thanks for visiting, Lucy!
