Sørvågen Radio

WHY WERE THE FIRST WIRELESS Morse signals in Northern Europe from the telegraph station in Sørvågen, far west in Lofoten, and where were these signals sent? What is Lofoten Line? Sørvågen radio – a telecom museum – gives you the answers to these and many other questions. The museum takes place in the former telegraph station and telephone exchange. The house was built in 1914 after the design of Lilla Georgine Hansen, Norway’s first female architect.

Sørvågen Radio has a rich and exciting compilation regarding local and national telecommunication history.

Walk through the different eras of telecommunication and get familiar with the devices from telegraph to telephone switchboards and wireless communication. See our exhibition of mobile phones, compare your own with the 1973 edition – there is a bit of a difference!
