Lofoten Tørrfiskmuseum

Lofoten Stockfish Museum (Lofoten Tørrfiskmuseum) is located in the village of Å in the municipality of Moskenes, in the Lofoten islands in the county of Nordland, Norway. [1]

The Lofoten Stockfish Museum is devoted to the production of Norwegian stockfish, one of Norway's oldest export commodity. The Museum is located in an old fish landing station. The museum displays the process from when the fish is brought ashore until it is finally packaged and ready for export. There are two museums located at Å in Lofoten, the other being the Norwegian Fishing Village Museum (Norsk Fiskeværsmuseum).[2]
