The Finnmark Exhibition

In the house from Olderfjord we tell the story of the family who lived here in 1956, about the rebuilding of Finnmark after World War II and about daily life in the post war years.

In the cowshed from Indre Billefjord we show an exhibition about the history of Finnmark, the German occupation 1940-45 and the evacuation andscorching of this part of Norway at the end of the war and about the people in Porsanger.
