About

Get to know the history of the Lofoten fisheries at one of the best-preserved manor houses in the region.

The Lofoten Museum is situated in an idyllic spot by the water’s edge, on the site of the medieval town of Vágar. The impressive manor house was completed in 1815, when Caspar Lorch was the owner of the fishing village. Here he traded and exported fish, as well as renting out cabins to the fishermen who came to join the winter season. Discover the contrast between life in the manor house and the authentic «rorbu»-cabins. There are also several boathouses with a large collection of traditional wooden boats to explore, as well as a charming “krambu”, or general store, and a lovely garden with historic perennials.
The Lofoten Museum is a part of SKREI and is located within walking distance from The Lofoten Aquarium and The Espolin Gallery. Visit all three with a combination ticket!
