Northern Norway Nordland MELØY

Ørnes Trade Post

  • Havneveien 13, ØRNES
  • +47 91009253
  •  /  km From You

The trade post was established in 1794 and is today a small and cosy museum in Ørnes in the Meløy region. Here you can enjoy a couple of interesting exhibitions as well as a nice cafe. The museum is located right next to Ørnes Hotel.

Ørnes Trade Post has history dating back to 1794, when skipper Elling Pedersen was privileged to run the inn and trade here. At one time the facility housed  12-14 buildings, three of which are still standing today. These are among the oldest houses in Ørnes..

The trade post was preserved in 1942 and has been substantially renovated in recent years. There is an exhibition in the main house about local development of society in Meløy.  

In the bakery we have the exhibition which tells of the 12 brave commandos who, in 1942 under the code name Operation Muskedunder, attacked the power plant at Fykan to stop the Nazi aluminum production in Glomfjord. 

We can help you find out what Meløy can offer from experiences with historical and cultural elements.

In addition there is both a museum shop and a nice café where we serve delicious home-made cakes that can be enjoyed in the cozy garden.

Season: 17th June - 12th August

Opening hours: Mon - Sat  1100- 1600.
