The maritime museum

In 2015 a brand new maritime museum opened in Hasseldalen. The Maritime Museum in Aust-Agder is based in modern premises by Vikkilen, in a beautiful location that has been home to shipyards and shipping activities for over 150 years.

It tells the story of Hasseldalen and Aust-Agder's important maritime history, and our visitors can enjoy exhibitions as well as a museum shop and café in historic surroundings.
A warm welcome to all our visitors!
