The Lofotr Viking Museum is a historical museum based on a reconstruction and archaeological excavation of a Viking chieftain's village in the North Norwegian archipelago of Lofoten, Norway. It is located in the hamlet of Borg, near Bøstad, Vestvågøy.

The museum includes a full reconstruction of an 83-meter long chieftain's house (the largest ever found in Norway), a blacksmith's forge, two ships and their boathouses, and various re-enactments intended to immerse the visitor in life at the time of the Vikings.

In September 2006, a planned enlargement of Lofotr was postponed due to archeological finds of 2000 year old cooking sites and pole holes at the site ((Norwegian)).

Awesome Viking building. Very large and very decorated. You can even put a armored shirt on and get a cool picture. The ship is ok but you have to walk 1.3km downhill to get there.
