Salangen Country Museum

Book Tickets Online


In the 18th and 19th century, people from southern Norway moved to inner Troms. The Salangen museum farmstead illustrates a cultural blend between South, North and Sami. It consists of seven buildings, all of which were moved here from their original environment, a farmhouse, barn, storage buildings, stable, forge and mill. The farmhouse “Limostua” was built in 1870 and three of the other buildings are of Sami origin.
