LOCAL AND NATIONAL TELECOM HISTORY Why did the first morse code signal in Northern Europe emanate from the telegraph station in Sorvagen, far west of Lofoten, in 1906? The telegraph was developed as early as 1861, with Sorvagen as the terminus. Why? And where were these signals sent? To which ship was the same wireless message sent in 1908?

Our Telecom Museum, Sørvågen Radio at Sørvågen provides answers to these and many other questions. The museums exhibition appeals to many age groups and interests, with its rich collection of newer and older pieces related to the topic. The information is visual and funny. Check out the exhibition of mobile phones and compare your own with the 1973 edition – there’s quite a difference!
There are not only phones and old switchboards, but also a good explanation as to why Lofoten and Sørvågen were among the first to adopt modern technology.

The museum is located in the “Telebygget” from 1914, designed by Georgine (Lilla) Hansen (1872-1962), the fist female architect of Norway.
