How to get here:          

The Coastal Heritage Museum is around 2 km from Florø. If you decide to walk there, it will take you about 30 minutes, and the trip will take you through a residential area and some beautiful natural scenery.

Public transport
If you arrive by passenger boat, you can hop on the city bus from the central bus station. It runs every half hour, and takes about 15 minutes to the Brendøyvegen stop. From there, it’s a short 500 meter walk to the museum.

By car
From the city centre, take the Kinnvegen road towards the airport. Follow the signs towards Brendøyvegen. You’ll find the exit towards the museum at the far end.

You may also take the Firdavegen road over Kleiva to the Båtevika parking area. From there you can take a nice walking trail through the museum grounds and across the bridges towards the main buildings.


The Coastal Heritage Museum is to a large degree accessible to visitors with reduced mobility. We have easy access to the reception, café and the majority of our exhibitions. One of the exhibition buildings has a lift.

Accessible restrooms can be found by the café.

The Brendøya outdoor area has accessible paths and a nature and culture trail. Goats and sheep graze here in the summer.
