The museum is situated in the middle of the old, well preserved part of Skudeneshavn. Old, wooden houses, built up around the herring fisheries during the 19th century. In the museum you can gain an insight in how the town grew up, how the middle class citizens lived and what kind of trade, industries and craftmen that characterized the city for over 150 years ago. Fisheries, herringsalting, trade and shipping are topics that have dominated Skudeneshavn for 200 years - the museum will give you a glimpse of how this has shaped the city.
