Kystmuseet Rørvik (The Rørvik Coastal Museum) is in Vikna. The museum is divided into three departments: Rørvik with the coastal culture centre of Norveg, Berggården trading post with boathouses and the quay; the listed cultural environment of the Sør-Gjæslingan fishing village, and Vågsenget farm area - the birthplace of the founder of the museum.
The coastal museum does extensive informational work through permanent and temporary exhibitions. The museum has used drama as an important tool in the informational storytelling with theatre productions, a wandering theatre performance and storytelling events. The museum works closely with local and regional theatre groups.
In the Sør-Gjæslingan fishing village you can live in a real rorbu – a traditional fisherman’s cabin – in the nationally listed and protected cultural environment. You can also go on a day trip with public express boat (ultimo may – ultimo august), or join M/S Sunniva from Norveg (ultimo June – primo august). Sør-Gjæslingan was awarded the Norwegian Cultural Heritage “Olavsrosa” (Olav’s Rose).
