Andøy Museum

Andenes Lighthouse was completed in 1859 and was the start of a major development in Andenes Havn. The lighthouse tells the story of the fishing village and the people who have inhabited this place for 1,500 years. But best of all is the view, it’s absolutely amazing!

ANDØYMUSEET SHOWS AN EXHIBITION about the polar regions, with emphasis on the life of trapper Hilmar Nøis. The public can also see an exhibition that gives insight into the unique geology of Andøya.

In RISØYHAMN there is a small open-air museum consisting of five buildings, and in the boathouse stands the cattle ear “Haakon”, built in Helgeland in 1880. Risøyhamnmartnaden is held every year in July, with stalls, food service and an open museum.
