Overview

The Merdø museum is a small coastal farm kept as it was in about 1800. Beautiful surroundings on the island makes this a popular summer holiday spot.

The location of the museum is idyllic, on the old outport and beautiful island of Merdø. The island is worth a visit to those who want to experience the nature, old coastal culture, or just enjoy themselves in cosy surroundings. There are a couple of small beaches, and a nice café on the side of the island towards land. The part of the island facing Skagerrak is rocky, scattered with pebbles and boulders, and has a fantastic view both summer and winter.

The museum is a small coastal farm with a main building from 1736, kept as it was in about 1800. Hourly tours in Norwegian during the summer season.

The museum is a department of Aust-Agder museum og arkiv, the county museum. Merdø was one of the most important outports in Sørlandet, with a customs station, pilot station, school, shop and post office.

Ferry to the island from Pollen in Arendal.
