The Historical Museum
What did the people of the past think, believe and know? How did they arrange their lives, their belongings and their knowledge? Take a journey to our house of many wonders; Experience some of Norway’s most beautiful stave church portals in our medieval exhibition. Learn about the Norwegian Stone Age people, explore the Egyptian mummies and get an insight into wonderfully diverse cultures from across the World through our ethnographic exhibitions.
The Historical museum is also a prime example of Art Nouveau architecture, and the rich embellishments has a unique mix of Norwegian and international elements.
