Norwegian Fishing village Museum

At Å at E 10, Kongeveien’s end station, you will find the Norwegian Fishing Village Museum, one of the best preserved and complete old fishing villages in North Norway. Discover our authentic buildings: boathouse, cod liver oil factory, manor house, forge, post office, fisherman’s cabin and 19th-century bakery. You can get to know the hard and picturesque life in a fishing village under the Lofoten Fishery and all year round. You will be guided through the daily lives of the travelling fisherman, the local families and the squire, who controlled the fishing village from around 1840 to 1960.
