Tough weather kept us from hiking our last day in Lofoten so we came here. What a pleasent surprise it was! Came with two small kids. Learned a great deal about how life used to be. Very worth our time and money!

This museum gives you a great experience about the fishing in Norway in the old days, its a small museum, so you can't spend a lot of time.
