The Norwegian Children's Museum

The Norwegian Children's Museum

Norsk Barnemuseum is a unique place for experiences and activities around childhood and children's culture. All members of the family enjoy themselves here.

Stavanger Museum is a museum of natural and cultural history established in 1877, located in the Norwegian city Stavanger. The museum's collections consist of several departments: the department of zoology, the department for cultural history (which also includes custodianship of the royal residence Ledaal), Stavanger Sjøfartsmuseum, Norsk Hermetikkmuseum (the Norwegian Canning museum), Norsk Barnemuseum, Norsk Grafisk Museum, Den Kombinerede Indretning and Vestlandske Skolemuseum.

Norsk Barnemuseum (Norwegian Children's Museum) is the greatest playpen in Norway for children ages 5 to 12. In fact, it is one of the best children's museums in all of Europe. Exhibits center around almost anything related to children. You get documentation and exhibitions, of course, but the museum also satisfies a kid's desire to play with toys -- it has the largest collection in the country. Storytelling and performances for children are also staged here.

A children's museum also evokes nostalgia and the recollection of one's own childhood. You will walk through the maze of growing up in a museum world of exhibitions, activities and theatre. Activities include climbing up into the "Scary Attic" or visiting a secret treehouse, or kids can even embark on a journey in a toy box or whisper into "a bag of secrets." You can paint or draw in the Workshop or embark on a Journey in the Toy Box. In the Labyrinth, you can discover new aspects of childhood, and old toys will take you back in time to your own childhood. Café and gift shop. This is very much a hands-on museum for kids, who are allowed to play with toys as well as paint, sing, write, or whatever. The museum also has more serious exhibits dealing with children's rights around the world.

Open Tuesday - Saturday all year round: 11.00-16.00.
Sundays: 12.00-17.00.
During school holidays the museum is open every day.
