Welcome to Fårö local heritage association!
Fårö local heritage association runs two museums on Fårö and publishes books about Fårö.
We also manage and preserve a few historical buildings on Fårö. These are Nanten's windmill, the house were Nanten lived his life as miller, the pilot´s cabin and Jauvika fisherman's cottage at Lauter harbour.
Sjöräddningsmuseet is our second museum located at Ekeviken. Here we show the boat "Skärsände" and tell stories of risky rescue operations. In the stormy waters of Salvorev, a reef north of Fårö, a lot of ships have been wrecked over the years. See more in the menu "Sjöräddningsmuseet".
We also offer various activities during the summertime such as walking tours, both in the nature and with cultural themes. Different types of lectures are also on the summer agenda. Ask at the museum reception!
