Recounting the short history of Bodø, this little gem of a museum has a cheerily entertaining and informative 25-minute film with English subtitles on the town's development. Museum highlights include a mock-up of a fisherman's rorbu , a section on Sami culture complete with sod hut and ritual drum, regalia relating to the town's fishing heritage, and a small hoard of 9th-century Viking treasure that was discovered nearby in 1919.
