The museum consists of the old School (1898), the shed (1950), Rorbu (Fisherman cabin) (1834) - probably one of the oldest rorbuer on the Lofoten island. The old school has a relatively complete interior from a class room, along with displays in the other rooms. Themes are to shoemaking, textiles, archeological finds from stone age, iron age and medieval ages, and a dentist´s office.
Objects from the fiskerbonden - “the fisherman farmer” - have been given ample space in the displays. Pleasant outdoor surrounding. Guided tours/introduction.
