Galleri Bodøgaard

Located on historic ground about 2.5 km from Bodø, between the venerable old farm Bodo, Nordland Museum's department of leisure Bodøsjøen, Bodin Church, and Nordland Cultural Centre. The gallery stands today as Northern Norway's largest private collection of art and artefacts and is from the summer of 2003 expanded to almost 600 square meters of exhibition space in addition to an exciting outdoor area.

This is organized into exhibitions on fishing, hunting and trapping, handicrafts, home crafts and agri-culture. There is also an exhibition on World War II, with a particular emphasis on the Russian prison-er-of-war camp that was located at Bodøgaard. The permanent collection comprises over 150 icons from Russia, Poland and Greece, as wall as a unique Russian gospel from 1791 that used to belong the Czar family. Also part of the collection are several hundred works by artists from the Arctic region. In addition, Gallery Bodøgaard displays temporary exhibitions, and offers fine art and crafts for sale. The facilities are also used for concerts and other cultural events. Meals and refreshments on request.

Opening times: Sundays 12 noon to 4 pm all year round. Opening times for special exhibitions and events will be announced. Beyond this, visits and guided tours can be arranged on request.
