About
The museum was founded in 1978 by the local Museum and History Association. Assisted by the local population, the association collected photographs and artifacts, thus forming the foundation of the museum’s collections. in 1998, Gamvik Museum moved from its former location in the school building into the newly restored fishery "Brodtkorbbruket." This is a truly authentic setting for a museum dedicated to the cultural history of the fishing villages of Gamvik municipality.

With a lot of local history and ways of life from the area recorded this was a fantastic place to visit.

We also found that the Museum Manager held the keys to Slettnes Fyr which is the Lighthouse at the very top of Mainland Europe which you can drive to.
He kindly offered to go and open the lighthouse up so we followed him and were not disappointed.

At the end we also purchased the 'proof' of our visit in the form of a certificate to show we had done it!

Comes highly recommended.

The museum boasts a fascinating display of history and life up in the Arctic North. We found the smallish display to be very informative and interesting. It is chronologically built up to lead the visitor from the stone age up to the modern day fishing industry. Even though the visitor is given an information brochure in various languages, it's a pity that the information on the walls and at the various displays is only available in Norwegian. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgable which makes up for the lack of certain information only being available in Norwegian. The museum is highly reccommended to get a good background on this amazing region of Northern Norway and the perfect way to spend a few hours on rainy or stormy days. Entry is only NOK 50.- which is exceptional value for money.

Go there to get an authentic impression of how coast life has been along the northern Norwegian coast the last centuries. You might also get some good tips from the people working there. It is a small, but informative museum.

In a small toen where only 130 people live, it's amazing to find such a nice museum. Jeanette was a warm welcome and told us a lot. She also took wonderfull pictures she showed us.
