The Petter Dass-Museum is located about 20 km south of Sandnessjøen, just off FV 17, the Coastal Route (Kystriksveien). Parking facilities include
reserved parking for the disabled. The museum is located in beautiful surroundings, next to the sea with a nice view towards The Vega Islands.
Individual visitors, both Norwegian and foreign tourists are among the biggest groups of visitors at the museum. During the summer season, which lasts between June 15-August 15, tours are organized every day both at the museum and in the church. A short movie is shown every hour in the auditorium. The movie tells about Petter Dass in the Baroque era. The maid Olava, tells about life as a servant at Petter Dass time. Out of season guided tours are offered by request.
The Petter Dass Museum welcomes groups both inside and outside the regular opening hours. We offer regular tours, or tours arranged by demand. It is also possible to combine a visit to the museum with a nice meal in Margrethes café. Here you can get a taste of locally produced traditional food from Helgeland.
