Lofoten Krigsminnemuseum.(Lofoten War Memorial Museum)

The background for the Lofoten Krigsminnemuseum is the Allied raid on Lofoten on March 4, 1941. This is considered to be the first raid of any size here in Norway and the first setback for Hitler. After the raid, the Germans fortified the area and constructed more bunkers per square meter than anywhere else in Norway. The museum is located in the old Post Office close to the Coastal Steamer pier in Svolvær center.
