Experience the history of the Lofoten Fishery at one of the best preserved squires in Lofoten. On the site of the medieval town of Vågar (now called Storvågan / SKREI Experience Center) you’ll find the stately 1815 main building, authentic fishermen’s cabins, and boathouses featuring Nordland boats.

The museum also offers picture-games and exhibitions on the Lofoten fisheries, ports and coastal lighthouses, traditional crafts and a beautiful garden with historic perennials. Guided tours by appointment.

The Lofoten Museum is a part of the SKREI Experience Center and lies within close walking distance of the Lofoten Aquarium and the Gallery Espolin.
