The Osvor Museum (Bolungarvik) depicts a replica of a fishing outfit of the rowboat era and is among the oldest of its kind in the country.  Upon the reconstruction of the fishing outfit, great care was taken to follow the original as closely as possible.

The fishing outfit consists of the Salt House, Fish Sheds, an open, six oared fishing boat, a wooden winch, a fish drying area and tool sheds.  Inside the sheds and fishermen’s lodgings are all the necessary things and gear of the fishermen past, their hide clothing, tools and artefacts.  The curator of the museum often wears the fishermen’s clothing and outside you are certain to see some dried fishes hanging from the wooden trestle.
