The owner is very friendly, interesting to listen his story and the stockfish's history and processing cycle. For the owner: I'm sorry I left without saying goodbye! Thanks a lot from Vicenza!

We had a fascinating hour or so here after being shown around by the owner. Be sure to see the short films he has on the stock fish trade, they are really interesting.The owner is friendly, charming and passionate about the stockfish trade. He also speaks excellent Italian....

The owner was very kind and warm despite arriving just before closing. The museum itself is small, but you get a good idea what the process was.

Torrfiskmuseum...an interesting and educational look into the processing of cod.
Aug 2017 • Couples
Since stockfish played an important part in Norwegian history, this is a wonderful place to explore the tools used and learn the method by which cod was processed. The exhibits are numbered to coordinate with a flyer describing each step of the operation.

This museum was one of the highlights of our visit to the Lofoten Islands. (Four days on the Lofotens was just not enough time for us.)

Owner/host was friendly and welcoming.
Highly recommend.

Stockfish is so integral to Lofoten and its history-the trip would not have been complete without stopping here to get an understanding of what goes on Jan-Mar EVERY year!

This museum is excellent and unique and it is run by a lovely couple who will explain everything you ever wanted to know about stockfish. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to watch the short film but luckily we had a chance to talk to the owners.

Not so great...

Maybe I am not as impressed with the museum as the other reviewers on account of us visiting in peak season - mid-July.

Mr. Larsen was always attending to someone, and we weren't able to ask him any questions, so we left with as many questions as we had prior to arrival.

The video was the best part of the "museum" - did provide some interesting visuals and facts. Didn't know they had "fisherman police, for example).

The museum... a bunch of original items salvaged and thrown together amidst blocks of styrofoam (to represent ice). None of the items provided any extra info ("here is a bench, before the bench the fishermen had to kneel to tie the fishes' tails, but now they didn't anymore, they could put the fish on the bench).

We are a curious bunch and we're seeking answers on all sorts of questions that we will still have to google. Why cod? Since the cod are hanging out to dry in the thick of winter, don't they freeze? The fishermen catch all sorts of fish along with cod - what do they do with that fish? What are cod tongues used for (featured prominently in the film).

We thought the "museum" is a bit of hackwork. I am sure we would have felt differently if we had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Larsen and ask him questions

Fantastically informative museum with a very personal touch
Jul 2017 • Couples
We were pleasantly surprised with this small, yet impressive museum dedicated to the «gold» of Lofoten, namely stockfish. The place is run by a local man who knows everything there is to know about stockfish. There is a very informative film in addition to a well laid out museum over twoo floors. All items are numbered and you get a leaflet in a variety of languages explaining vey well what is on display. Also, you can ask any question you like, as long as it is about stockfish, the guy will give you an answer having first hand experience himself. Only thing you need to be aware of, is tha you can only pay by cash. So make sure you have fifty NOK per person in cash.

Genuine fish processing house
Jul 2017 • Couples
We were greeted by the owner who spoke a number of languages and was very enthusiastic about the history of fishing and drying fish. He had a short film, again in a number of languages as well. The places Le full of working tools and dried fish in the different processes. Really gives a feel to how life was for the people here.
