Sørvågen Radio is a telemuseum about local and national telecommunications history.
WHY WERE THE FIRST WIRELESS Morse signals in Northern Europe from the telegraph station in Sørvågen, far west in Lofoten, and where were these signals sent? This museum gives you the answers to these and many other questions.
The museum has a rich, exciting collection of newer and older objects related to the theme. See our exhibition of mobile phones, compare your own with the 1973 edition – there is a bit of a difference!
The exhibition in the museum appeals to many age groups and interests. Here are not only telephones and old switchboards, but also good explanations of why Lofoten and Sørvågen were among the first to use modern technology. the museum is located at Moskenesveien 889 in Sørvågen.
