Norwegian Jekt trade museum

Bodø’s new attraction opend 22. June 2019. Here we’ll take you onboard for a journey into history you will never forget. The history of trade in circumpolar Norway is extraordinary. The open square sailed ship called Jekt sailed the Norwegian coast from medieval times to modern day.

Onboard it carried stock fish and cod-liver oil. The coastal communities in northern Norway depended on this trade. A uniquely preserved jekt is the center of the exhibition.

In the museum café you can enjoy the view, while having a snack or taste some stockfish cuisine.

The Norwegian Jekt trade museum is situated just a few minutes from Bodøs hotels and airport.
