Overview

Sømna Bygdetun highlights how the lives of fishermen-farmers and their families changed in the course of the years 1800–1950.

The open-air museum, beautifully situated by Vik church, comprises twelve old buildings that have been restored. The museum highlights food traditions and culinary history, various crafts and home handicrafts. In the gardens you can see old varieties of grains, vegetables and herbs grown by our predecessors. There are informative signs by the various plants. The gardens may be visited also outside the museum’s regular opening hours. The museum shop offers a variety of merchandise including postcards.

Since the Middle Ages there has been a church in the village of Vik. The present church is a neo-gothic wooden long church built in 1876. Its beautiful altarpiece was made by an artist named Even Ulving. The church accommodates 600 people for its services.

Sommerdagan – a summer celebration
At the end of July every year, Sømna invites locals and visitors to its summer celebration. Many of the events are held at the museum. Here are exhibitions, a variety of stands, traditional baking and hay harvesting, and naturally all the buildings are open to the public.

Opening hours
The museum is open in the summer, during cultural events and on request.
