Saltdal Museum
Located at Saltnes, about 1 km east of Rognan, this village is a collection of original
rural buildings, moved to the site of the old Skippergården Farm. The main building is
from about 1750. The original owners were sailors and traders, as well as farmers. They
sailed their ships to Bergen loaded with fish and furs, and returned loaded with corn and
consumer goods for the people of Saltdal.

The «Blood Road» Museum
This museum is located on the same site as Saltdal Museum. Located in an original German
barracks, the museum helps to show how the prisoners of war lived and worked
from the time of their arrival in 1942, until the end of the war in 1945. The museum
was opened by the Minister of Transport in May 1995, as part of the 50th Anniversary
celebration of Norway’s liberation. Some parts of the museum are accessible for wheelchairs.
