The Bodø City Museum, dating from 1903, is one of the oldest buildings in downtown Bodø.
On the surface Bodø appears to be a young city with a short history. But it actually has a rich past. Before World War II Bodø was a small busy coastal town with canneries, steamship wharves, stores, offices, and everything else you would expect to find in a town. The town boundary was only two streets behind the museum.
The museum will go through extensive remodeling and be made more accessible to the public.
