Ballangen Museum

For a long time, the community in Ballangen existed because of the mining industry. Hence, mining history is the main theme of the museum. Through the lens of a unique collection of objects, you get an insight into the former heyday of this community, its cultural events, schooling and everyday life. The museum is housed in the old administration building of the mining company Bjørkaasen Gruber, built in 1919. Even the building itself is worth a visit – and welcome in!
