One of The Ryfylke Museum’s finest branch museums can be found in the smallest of the region’s municipalities, Kvitsøy. The lobster museum re-opened in 2013 contains an impressive collection of fishing equipment and tackle.
From Kvitsøy you can’t get farther out towards the sea anywhere else in Ryfylke. The sea has always been the basis for settlement on this island where lobster fishing was begun in the 1600s. Lobster parks and lobster export have been especially important for bringing Kvitsøy renown as a center for lobster fishing.
Exhibitions fill three floors of its building. The main exhibition concentrates on lobsters, lobster fishing and the lobster trade. Other exhibitions deal with other type of fisheries, with life on Kvitsøy and with boats and motors. Kvitsøy is a real gem and well worth visiting!
