Oterholt, the old town centre of Bø, is the main site for the museum. Here you will find Åheim village store from 1898, with a museum shop selling craftwork and traditional food. The old warehouse is a cafè. On the islet of Kvennøya, just below Oterholt, you will find the mill site, with four reconstructed buildings. There is a café and museum store which sells traditional handmade items from artisans in the area. There are several exhibitions showing a fiddle workshop, spindle making workshop, goldsmithery, wood art, and more. The museum bakes and serves food for special occasions. They offer: traditional dishes, seasonal dishes, cold platters, Christmas platters, party cakes, rolls, breads, sandwiches, flatbreads, and coffee. School classes can come to learn how to bake bread. The Bø Museum also serves as a starting point for a trail along the Bø river where you can experience nature at its finest. There are also several cultural markers on the trail indicating buildings or traces of the people living hundreds of years ago in the area.
