Museet i Mælandsgården

The Mæland Museum inhabits an old, listed timber building in Skudeneshavn. The town itself grew up in the 19th Century on the back of the bountiful herring fisheries. Visitors will get an idea of how the town expanded, see how a prosperous family of merchants lived 150 years ago, and examine the craftsmanship that formed the streets. Fishing, herring salting, trade and shipping have been the pillars of Skudeneshavn life for almost two centuries. The Museum helps explain how these forces have moulded the town.

The Museum in Mælandsgården located in historic Skudeneshavn is just the place for rich servings of local history in authentic surroundings. You are welcome to a theatrical walking tour every Sunday during July. Follow 18th century figures on an exciting trip through the history of the town.
