STIFTELSEN MUSEUM NORD

Museum Nord is a non-profit, government-supported organisation within the national museum network, operating 21 different museums in northern Nordland county.

Museum Nord contributes to the collection and documentation of historic sites and objects, carrying out research, and disseminating and promoting the cultural and natural history of Ofoten, Vesterålen and Lofoten. In this context the museum works towards the preservation of archaeological and architectural buildings and monuments, physical environments of cultural significance, and the region’s intangible cultural heritage.

Despite its location above the Arctic Circle Museum Nord is one of Norway’s most visited museums. Among our 21 venues, there are large facilities that welcome a large number of visitors each year. At the same time, we also operate many smaller sites, such as community museums and heritage centers with local significance.
