The National Women’s History Museum

Through the ages women have largely been almost invisible in history books and in museums. The goal of the National Women’s History Museum is to claim women’s place in history. This is achieved by documenting women’s lives and work through the ages and up to present day. The museum exhibitions tells the story of women’s struggle to have a voice in public. There is also an exhibition focusing on childhood and how toys have developed and how they define gender.

One of the exhibitions at the National Women’s History Museum is dedicated to the author Dagny Juel, as the museum holds house in her childhood home. She lived an intense life amongst the bohemians at the end of the 1800s. She is remembered as one of the most remarkable, as well as mysterious, of the avant-gardists. At the National Women’s History Museum you will also find a library filled to the brim with both domestic and international feminist literature. You can easily browse the entire collection on a visitor computer and then relax in the cosy nook with the reading material of your choice.

Kongsvinger Museum and Kongsvinger Fortress is only a short stroll away.
