From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Sørvågen contains a local department of the Norsk Telemuseum (Norwegian Telecom Museum) which reflects the local history of telegraphy. In 1861, the island became part of the 170 kilometres (110 mi) long Lofoten telegraph line with a station in Sørvågen (which became the Sørvågen museum in 1914). In 1867, the line was connected with Europe. In 1906, a wireless telegraph system was installed in Sørvågen—the second in Europe after Italy—connecting Sørvågen with Røst.

The exhibitions will be closely linked to the following landmarks in the history of telecommunications in Lofoten and Norway:
• Norway’s first fisheries telegraph service, the Lofoten Line, 1861
• Northern Europe’s first permanent wireless telegraph service, 1906
• Norway’s first permanent ship’s telegraph, 1908
• Norway’s first permanent wireless telephone (radiotelephone), 1928
• Norway’s first permanent radio link, 1946
