Description

Based on the theme "Cod, telegraph and telephone".

This unusual museum, with exhibits of landline telegraphy, wireless telegraphy and radio telephony, shows why Lofoten was such an important part of Norwegian and European telecom history – and how both Marconi and Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany were linked to the establishment of the first fixed wireless telegraphy system in Northern Europe.
