Nordland Museum – Bodø city museum.

The Nordland Museum, dating from 1903, is among the oldest surviving buildings in the centre of Bodø. The exhibitions here cover the Viking Age, the Sami, the Lofoten fisheries and “our town”. In addition, there is an interesting dry aquarium in the cellar.

On the surface Bodø appears to be a young town with a short history. But in reality it has a rich past. Before the Second World War Bodø was a busy little coastal town with canneries, steamship wharf, shops, offices and everything you expect to find in a town. The town boundary was just two streets behind the museum.

The museum was reopened in april 2018, and is now presenting various exibitions througout the year.

We are working on a new exibition for the Silvertreasure that will be available in the autum of 2018.

About one thousand years ago a large hoard of silver was hidden in a rocky slope not far from the centre of Bodø. The treasure was discovered in 1919 and contained the largest ring brooch known from the Viking Age and Iron Age.
