In Rissa it is a must to visit the museum «Kystens Arv» in Statsbygd.

The museum also has an informative exhibition on the Lofoten fisheries. Both adults and children will enjoy a visit to this museum.
Rein monastery is also a part of the museum. Originally, this was a nunnery built during the 1200 century. Today, you can see the ruins of the abbey church at the present farmyard Rein.
In beautiful Råkvåg you can walk along the longest wharf row outside cities in Norway. These wharfs originate from the time when herring fishing was at its peak during the 1920-30s.
