HOW TO FIND US

Lofotr Viking Museum
Vikingveien 539
8360 Bøstad

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Tickets: Entrance tickets can be purchased both on arrival at the museum and prior to your visit.

Audio guide: Bring your own smartphone and earphones. With the help of this and our audio guide system, you will be guided through the exhibitions.

Food and drink: Can be bought and enjoyed in our café, skjelterskjå and chieftain’s house.

Wi-Fi: The Audioguide network is available in the arrival facility

Wardrobe and luggage: Unfortunately, we have no wardrobe or the possibility of storing luggage.

Toilets and changing rooms: You will find toilets in the arrivals facility and the chieftain’s house. Down at the activity area and in the Viking ship harbour we have outdoor toilets. Adapted toilets with changing areas for children can be found both in the arrivals facility and in the chieftain’s house.

Accessibility: We try to accommodate everyone as best we can. Read more about accessibility here: https://www.lofotr.no/en/accessibility/

Weather: The weather can be changeable in Lofoten, also in summer. Due to large outdoor areas and many nice roads to walk, feel free to dress wind and waterproof if conditions warrant it. The footpaths are gravel and you can push a stroller along the roads/paths.

Photography: It’s nice if you want to take pictures in the museum, but please don’t use flash in the exhibits. It is important to pay attention to the other guests visiting the museum. Privacy is important, don’t share photos of others without consent.

Social media: Do you want to share your photos on social media?  Here are some tags you can use to share them with us: #Lofotrvikingmuseum #lofotr #21museer1000historier

Lost property: All lost property is delivered to the ticket point in the arrivals facility and can be picked up there. Lost property is stored for approx. 1 month.

Dogs: Dogs are not allowed inside the museum buildings. But it is possible to take your dog with you down to the activity area and the marina.

TIME SPENT

How long time do I need? The offerings at the museum vary throughout the year. In summer there are extra many craftsmen / demonstrations and activities to join. In winter, the walkways are only partially plowed, the Viking ship is in a locked boathouse, so we recommend you concentrate on the permanent exhibitions and the longhouse.

Here are some timing tips: All year round our permanent exhibitions and the chieftain’s house are always available during our opening hours. Here you should calculate approx. 2 hours. With this amount you have time to explore the exhibitions, watch the film, talk to guides/craftsman and study the interior and architecture of the chieftain’s house.

Season: During the main season there are several activities at the activity area and the Viking Ship port: Allow about 1-2 hours extra so that you have plenty of time to see the Viking ship and the Viking ship port, as well as participate in activities. It is approx. 1400 meters to walk on foot from the chieftain’s house to the activity area. The road down is gravel and has some steep sections. Allow about 20 minutes each way. Sailing or rowing takes about 30 minutes (and you may have to wait your turn). The activities are led by our Vikings. Calculate that you may have to wait a bit for your turn, as well as a few minutes for each activity.

Meals: A meal break in the café, chieftain’s house or skjelterskjåen café also requires extra time.

The Viking Festival: The festival takes place every year in August. Then there is extra work going on and you should calculate several hours at the museum.

PARKING

The museum has a large car park located just off the E10.

The parking has marked areas for buses, motorhomes, caravans and bicycles. At entrance B there is only mobility – disabled people who have the opportunity to park. Here there are three reserved parking spaces.

During the high season, even more parking will be opened if needed.
