1983 saw the start of the excavation, and in 1986 - 1989 specialists scholars from the entire Nordic area converged Borg. The excavation slowly but surely uncovered the largest house in the Viking world, both in Norway and in Europe.Today, the Lofotr Viking Museum consists of an impressive reconstruction of the Chieftain´s house, in full size (83 meters long), next to the site of the original house. The museum exhibitions offers archaeological artefacts, film and giftshop.

With the mountain at its back and otherwise surrounded by the sea, Henningsvær was a natural hub of activity during the Lofoten Winter Fishery in earlier days. Today, Henningsvær is still a fascinating destination with its many small craft shops, art galleries and pleasant atmosphere. Because of the many islands joined by bridges, Henningsvær is often called "the Venice of Lofoten".
