Lofoten Museum

Experience the history of the Lofoten Fishery on the site of the medieval town of Vågar. Located beautifully by the shore you’ll find the stately Mannor House from 1815, authentic fishermen’s cabins, and boathouses featuring traditional Nordland boats. The museum also offers historical photos and exhibitions on the Lofoten fisheries, ports and coastal lighthouses, traditional crafts and a beautiful garden with historic perennials.

The sourrounding are incredibly idyllic, family friendly and the museum is open no matter the weather.
