The museum has spacious grounds with pleasant pathways which are easily accessible in summer. The weather in Lofoten is very changeable, so dress sensibly if you like being outdoors.

Free Wi-Fi?
Yes, but only in the reception area.

We accept most major credit cards and cash payment in NOK and Euro. There are no cash machines at the museum.

Baby and infant?
A toilet with a baby changing station is available in the Glasshouse (reception area). It may be a good idea to bring a pushchair/pram along if you have small children, it is about 1400 metres from the museum reception area to the Viking ship. Good, gravelled pathways. The museum does not have any pushchairs or prams for hire or loan.

Out of consideration for the museum’s livestock, dogs are not allowed in the reception area or in or around the Chieftain’s House. The companion/escort system applies here, so that visitors who would have had a service dog with them, can be assisted by a companion/escort in these areas. The museum does not offer dog minder or kennel services.

What comes for free?
Activities are free of charge once you have bought your admission ticket. Exceptions may occur at particular events. Food and drink are available for purchase. Some activities may be full, e.g. sailing the Viking ship, in which case you must wait until there are vacancies. Groups can book in advance or hire the ship for their own excursions. Activities for groups.
