Overview
More
The museum is a popular spot for outings among the people of Bodo. The grounds were purchased by the Nordland Museum in 1938 and all the buildings there have been relocated from various other places in Nordland. In the boathouses we find the Nordland Museum’s boat collection. The big grey boathouse houses the country’s only Nordland Jekt, the ”Anna Karoline”. She was built in 1876 and brought ashore here in Bodosjoen in 1959. The ”jekt” were cargo vessels used to carry stockfish and other goods to Bergen for over 400 years. Mid-summer event with a range of activities. Guided tours available on request.

We were not sure what to expect in a small museum but this had a really interesting history of Bodo. The information in English was limited but there was lots you could interpret from the Norwegian displays. Unfortunately the dry aquarium is something to miss!

If in Bodo in Northern Norway a visit to the Nordland Museum is worth every minute you spend looking at the exhibits. It is close to the centre of this delightful town and near the Dom Kirke. A short, informative film is screened regularly which...More

A small museum which shows the history of Bodo particularly the devastation of WWII and the reconstruction thereafter. Displays are not encased. Signage on the walls is mainly Norwegian but there were some signs in English so maybe they are updating. However there is an...More

We popped into the museum just to kill some time, but ended up spending ages there. The displays were really good and gave us a good introduction to the history of that part of Norway.

It's well worth searching out this fascinating little local museum. It's not far from the centre of Bodo, near the Dom Kirke. There is an informative film about the history of the town and well displayed exhibits. The curators are very friendly and welcoming.

nice expositions about history of this small city, some parts looks old fashioned but I find it still enough interesting to learn something new ... :)

This is about. 30-45 min. experience. There is a guide in English at the ticket counter, it is only a couple of pages. My favorite part was the Sami Display. Remember, Bodo is a small town and the museum is a reflection of that. The...More
