Tysfjord Museum’s facility in Gásluokta / Kjøpsvik consists of two buildings. The former lensmann’s (sheriff’s) house, which later housed NPCs CEO, was the first building in the Kjøpsvik Museum. Museum collection over time grew so much that Tysfjord Historical Society had to acquire an additional building, the nearby Helland house, in which we now show the new exhibition called Sprekk (Cracks).
The museum houses objects from almost 100 years of NPC/Norcem operations.
Museum Nord’s newest exhibition was opened June 24th 2016. A former flower shop at Hovedveien 20 (Helland house) has been totally transformed and now houses a top-modern exhibition. The exhibition highlights unique traits of Tysfjord’s evolution. The industrial development, relations between the Sami people and Norwegians as well as Tysfjord’s geography are all presented here.
