The Lofoten Museum is closed
Published 24 October 2022
Due to a comprehensive upgrade of the electrical systems in the historic buildings, the Lofoten Museum will be closed for a longer period starting November 1st 2022.
The Lofoten Museum is situated in an idyllic spot by the water’s edge, on the site of the medieval town of Vágar. The impressive manor house was completed in 1815, when Caspar Lorch was the owner of the fishing village. Here he traded and exported fish, as well as renting out cabins to the fishermen who came to join the winter season. Discover the contrast between life in the manor house and the authentic «rorbu»-cabins. There are also several boathouses with a large collection of traditional wooden boats to explore, as well as a charming “krambu”, or general store, and a lovely garden with historic perennials. Private guiding by appointment.
The Lofoten Museum is located within walking distance from The Lofoten Aquarium and The Espolin Gallery. Visit all three with a combination ticket!
