Frøya Folkepark is a small local museum on the island of Frøya at the outer most coast of Norway. The project is inspired by the traditional “Notheng” (net-hang) building: A large open constructions where fishermen would hang their nets to dry. In addition to this practical use, these buildings would often be utilized for social gathering due to their openness and size: They were often the largest building in the community.
The museum on Frøya will exhibit the local municipality’s wide collection of historical objects, art and photography from the coastal environment in the region. The building is planned to be part of a larger collection of old buildings and constructions, aiming to create a vivid and exciting outdoor museum at Sistranda / Frøya.
