Folkeparken Open-Air Museum

Folkeparken Open Air Museum rests in beautiful surroundings at the south end of the island of Tromsø.
The museum is open every Sunday during the summer season (June 20 - August 22) from noon until 4:00 pm. In the big boathouse you can explore the exhibit “In cod we trust” which is built around two big fishing boats that are typical for Northern Norway. It highlights the many contributions of women in preparation for the big fishing season in the Lofoten Islands, boat-building and international export of stockfish and clipfish.

In the main house, which comes from the trading center of Kvitnes on Vannøya, visitors can see the permanent exhibit “Kven are Kven” by Åsne Kummeneje Mellem. You can buy ice cream and coffee in the Stabbur Kiosk as well as play simple, fun outdoor games. See the separate program for additional activities at Perspektivet Museum.
The Open Air Museum is not fenced in and can be visited outside of opening hours. You can get to know this area through a voice-guided tour via QR codes that can be downloaded for free on your own phone. You will also find street art nearby, including a summer exhibit and a mural designed by Walls of Women.
