Herøy Bygdesamling – a rural museum

This rural museum, situated on the beautiful island of Herøy in Helgeland, documents the local culture and history. The museum consists of a compete farmstead, altogether seven buildings dating from the period 1745–1890, all of which are protected or listed as worthy of preservation.

The buildings include the farmhouse “Borgstua”, a storehouse (stabbur), a barn, a root cellar, boathouse, wharf and a fish shed (“Flæsbua”). The museum, which has an extensive collection of old objects, documents 1500 years of local history.

The collections highlight farming, fishing and hunting, the daily life and special occasions of the islanders and coastal people through the centuries.

The museum’s closest neighbour is Herøy church, popularly often referred to as Helgeland cathedral. This Romanesque long church built in the 12th century is one of only three medieval churches in Helgeland. The other two are Dønnes church on Dønna and Alstahaug church near Sandnessjøen. The nearby white vicarage built in the 1780s is still in use.

During the summer you can visit the exhibitions, and enjoy a cup of coffee with waffles. Nearby you can also rent a rowboat or a bicycle, try grinding with a millstone, and much more. The Herøy Tourist Information Office on site can give you good information and great suggestions for exploring the nearby islands.

Opening hours
The museum is open during the summer, for special events and on request.
