  • Stockfish Museum is located in the picturesque fishing village and here you can learn all about the production of this product. It is interesting to listen to and look at the huge head and stuffed cod and other fish. During the film you can enjoy tea, coffee and biscuits.

  • Since stockfish played an important part in Norwegian history, this is a wonderful place to explore the tools used and learn the method by which cod was processed. The exhibits are numbered to coordin...  more »
  • Lofoten, aside from the beautiful scenery, the other thing to see is everything that revolves around the cod fishing, the fishermen's houses, to the dryers off, full or empty, to craft and museums scattered, like this one, converted from an old warehouse, with a strange character Guide, before seeing a movie in French with English subtitles on a tiny television set, then explaining periods, such as fishing has evolved, how it is and where it is exported the fish (I think for 80% even in Italy!), recipes ... everything. Very dovertente and characteristic If this review did you like, you can read my other on Norway (and others) and I'm glad a click on: is it useful? Thanks:)

  • It's a building dedicated to the historical significance of dried fish. The staff is enthusiastic, the material is as interesting as dried fish can be, it smells horrible. Would reccomend.
  • Wonderful museum, in my opinion one of the most beautiful places of all the trip to Norway! Mr. Steinar Larsen beautifully explained us how norwegian fishermen caught and preserved stockfish. Maybe we will meet us again. A big hug and greetings from Italy!
  • A fun place to learn about dried cod. Everything to need to know about stockfish. And you need to know!
  • I went in A during a heavy rain, so I visited the museum, but I found out that it is really interesting, much more than I thought, and should be in every A visitors' "must" list. In addiction the director is friendly and talks personally to everyone who visits the museum.
  • Good old nice stile, genuine atmosphere, and a nice bakery/cafe close by!
