Free boat shuttle

The new museum shuttle boat Ole Bull will run between Lysøen and Buena Pier in summer 2021, with free admission!

The villa at Lysøen will be undergoing extensive renovation in the next few years and will be closed to visitors this summer.

We will therefore offer outdoor events at Lysøen in the summer of 2021.

As a bonus, transportation to the island by boat will be free for everyone!

The crossing takes approximately eight minutes and leaves from "Buena kai" (Buena Quay) at Lysekloster. There is free parking by the boat.

About the boat:

Ole Bull is nothing less than Norway’s first electric museum boat. It has toilet facilities and is wheelchair accessible.

The boat was built at Måløy boatyard and constructed in close collaboration with Easyform, Stadt Towing Tank and Sea Technology. It is designed by Atle Ellefsen in DNV GL.

The Boat Schedule (18th May – 15th September 2021):

Tuesday – Sunday: The boat leaves from Buena Quay at Lysekloster, every hour on the hour from 11:00, with last return from Lysøen island at 16:30.
