The Stavanger Museum is located centrally in the town. Different exhibitions, historical for the region, a nice toy museum, birds etc.A small cafe.

This was disappointing. The other stavanger museums excel by focussing on one topic. But this a general small museum with an incoherent mix of displays that don't fit together. One to avoid.

Loved our visit. The children’s museum was particularly good and it was just what we needed in a rainy morning. Very interactive, my daughter particularly liked the castle!

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

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