Narvik Museum

Narvik Museum tells the story of the construction of the Ofotbanen railway and operation, the iron ore’s long journey from Kiruna to Narvik’s ice-free harbour and further out into the world, and the development of Narvik city through more than 100 years. We offer slide shows, models, movies and “train rides” in an authentic motor wagon. The museum also show a exhibition on the electrification of the Ofotbanen railway, in addition to travelling exhibits and art exhibits that are changing throughout the year.

You find us in the national railway company’s former administration building, a monumental brick building from 1902, at the foot of the mountain Fagernesfjellet and a short walk from centre of Narvik. Enjoy excellent views from the museum park to the harbour and LKAB’s shipping facilities. Narvik’s hidden jewel can be found in Administrasjonsveien 3.
