Korsnes museum

Museum Nord – Divtasvoudna/Tysfjord, Korsnes is located in an idyllic area with white beaches and lush landscape 6 km from the ferry quay at Bognes. The venue is an old communications center; here was a trading post, post office, telegraph and damship call. The buildings dates from the 1700s and 1900s.

In the old barn you get to know the cheerful and strong-willed photographer Magdalene Norman from Korsnes, who returned to her childhood home in adulthood and worked at the communications center.

On the neighboring farm Leiknes, just a short hike from Korsnes, is a famous rock art field from the Old Stone Age which is 8000–10 000 years old.
