The Norwegian Klipfish Museum

The Norwegian Klipfish Museum (bacalhau) is a large and well preserved wharf dating back to 1749.

The wharf was used for klipfish (saltmatured, dried codfish) production and a visit at the museum gives both a visual and perceptible impression of what came to be of such great importance in regards to the development of Kristiansund from the 18th century and to the post-war period. One can still smell salt and klipfish in the old wharf!

Visit the museum and learn about traditional klipfish (bacalhau) production through photos as well as through stories told by the knowledgeable guides. The museum also has a café.
