We had a rainy day in Stavanger, a perfect day for museums. The Stavanger Museum has interesting exhibits on a wide range of subjects and interests. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Stavanger Museum. I would recommend it.

I am definitely not a museum person, I get bored of them quite quickly, but I had an extra day in Stavanger so I give it a chance. I am glad I did. I spent there 3 hours and I could stay 2 more if...More

This Museum is mostly in a charming mansion. It is very child-friendly, but I was on my own for this visit. There seems to be an Anthony Gormley man outside, similar to the ones on Crosby sands. Harry Potter fans would love the snowy owl...More

Thoroughly enjoyed this Museum based in an old fish warehouse dating from about 1770. Not fusty, dusty or remotely boring! Lots of interesting artefacts and objects reflecting the history of Stavanger from its early days as a canning and fishing city until last century when...More

This covers from the start of Stavanger history. 4 stories, covering a verity of areas (wwII, industry, nature, etc.) Very child friendly, with many hands on displays.

I love this place. It's not the newest or flashiest museum, and some of the exhibits are desperately in need of TLC, but it's got character in spades. Some old, mangy taxidermy, artifacts plundered from all over the world, dioramas! This place has it all....More

Our Airbnb host gave us a museum pass so it was free for us. Sorry I don’t know the price.
