Andøymuseet, Andenes

ANDØY MUSEUM

Andenes Lighthouse was completed in 1859 and was the start of a major development in Andenes Havn. The lighthouse tells the story of the fishing village and the people who have inhabited this place for 1,500 years. But best of all is the view, it’s absolutely amazing!

Andøy Museum shows an exhibition about the polar regions, with emphasis on the life of trapper Hilmar Nøis. Nøis was one of the most famous trappers on Spitsbergen. The public can also see an exhibition that gives insight into the unique geology of Andøya.

The museum is open every day, all year. For visits outside regular opening hours, please contact us.
