  • A small museum but crammed chock-full of historical objects and memorabilia! So full we spent almost an hour in just one room looking and reading stuff. Very educational and insightful. Receptionist was a very helpful and kind lady who gave us a tour and explanations of various objects and pointed out specific things of particular interest. The owner of the museum is a very passionate man and personally provides guided tours of the objects he has collected over 50 years. My gf and I made a donation because we were so enamored by the museum. Definitely worth a visit if you're into WW2 history! Svolvær is an old beautiful small town with a rich history!
  • I'm simply amazed of the enormous collection. The owner William Hakvaag told a lot of stories from WW2 I wasn't aware of. If you're in Svolvær - it's a must to visit Lofoten War Memorial Museum.
  • A must visit if you are into WW2. It still feels more like a personal collection, but to me, that lends it a unique charm. Many interesting items in there!
  • Don't let the small space fool you. This Museum is packed with more items than any other WW2 Museum I have visited. Really rare items can be found here. Keep your eye out for the A.H. signed Disney pictures! The guy who runs the place is an avid collector and has some awesome stories to tell.
  • An incredibly unique and impressive collection. If I regret one thing it was not talking longer with the gentlemen who I assume is responsible for the whole thing. He was clearly an amazing historian and we regretted leaving as soon as we did. Don't do what we did. Talk with that man.
