Lofoten War Memorial Museum
Despite its compact size, the Lofoten War Memorial Museum
contains Norway's largest collection of fascinating exhibits
including uniforms, photographs, original drawings by Adolf Hitler,
weapons and other artefacts from the Second World War.
A former fish-freezing plant has been transformed into one of
the world's first permanent exhibitions of ice sculpture. Kept at a
constant -6OC, this large building contains many sculptures and
installations depicting everyday life, nature, tradition and
culture in Lofoten, and there is also a bar at which warming
spirits are served in glasses made from ice.
Kongstind Alpine Skiing Centre
Established in 1970 and run entirely by volunteers, Svolvaer's
own ski resort offers both mountain and off-piste ski runs for
skiers of all abilities and has its own lift.
North Norwegian Art Centre
Svolvaer is home to many artists, and the North Norwegian Art
Centre features exhibitions of artworks, sculptures, painting and
ceramics from north Norway's artists on a regularly changing basis
as well as providing a permanent gallery dedicated to Gunnar Berg;
a nineteenth-century painter born in the town.
