See an impressive art collection and watch a film in which Espolin talks about his own work. Gift shop with locally produced handicrafts.
- Lofoten Museum -
The impressive manor house was completed in 1815, when Caspar Lorch was the owner of the fishing village. Here he traded and exported fish, as well as renting out cabins to many of those who came to join the Lofoten fisheries in the harsh winter season. Discover the contrast between life in the manor house and the authentic «rorbu»-cabins and see the traditional wooden boats that were used.
