1000 years of plowing, cross and sword
Set in historical surroundings on the Trondenes peninsula, 3km outside Harstad center, located Trondenes Historical Centre. The exhibition gives an insight into the Harstad region's history from the young stone age to the present day, with emphasis on the Viking and Middle Ages. The story is enhanced through the use of multimedia show, lights, sound and smell. Let yourself also the lure of our café with terrace and panoramic views, as well as our gift shop.

We also recommend a walk through the cultural landscape at Trondenes past boathouses, burial mounds and the 2000 year old farm mound. But recent history - and painful history - has left its marks with a German camp, Russian POW camp and Finnmark camp. The trail begins at the museum and are marked in Norwegian, German and English.
