Description

The Norwegian Klipfish Museum is situated on the island of Gomalandet in a large and well preserved wharf dating back to 1749. The wharf was used for klipfish production and a visit at the museum gives both a visual and perceptible impression of what came to be of such great importance in regards to the development of Kristiansund from the 18th century and to the post-was period. One can still smell salt and klipfish in the old wharf!

Visit the museum and learn about traditional klipfish production through photos as well as through stories told by the knowledgeable guides. In addition the museum has a café where food samples of bacalao is served - this is included in the ticket.

The museum is open for the public during the summer season. For easiest access, use the Sundbåten harbour ferry - just tell the skipper to drop you off at the wharf!
