Lista's interesting history is depicted through an extensive exhibition of collected historical items and traditional buildings.
At Lista Museum you will find Nordberg Fort, built by the Germans during World War 2. This fort is one of the few coastal forts built by the Germans that is preserved in its original form. As such it is protected as cultural heritage.
The exhibition "The Privateer Times 1807-1814" narrates the locals' efforts during the Napoleon War and the consequence of it.
