The ground floor is where you'll find items devoted to fishing and ships, while the second floor focuses on the different types of livelihood related to the sea.

Aside from its tasty menu, Randulf's Sea House attracts visitors through its rich cultural heritage. The building was built in 1890 by Norwegian Peter Randulff. Its initial function was to provide a place for landing and processing herrings.
