Stavanger Art Museum
- Museums and Attractions
Stavanger Art Museum offers a collection of distinguished Norwegian and international art ranging from nineteenth century art to contemporary art.
The collection consists of approx. 2500 works of art from the 1900 century to present. Of particular interest is the unique collection of paintings by Lars Hertervig (1830-1902), born in Tysvær by Stavanger, and whose romantic, powerful and highly personal landscapes still have a strong impact on the viewers.
The museum also contains the Hafsten collection, a former private collection of works by Norwegian mid-century painters, making the museum a national centre for art from this period. The museum is beautifully situated in the park surrounding the lake Mosvannet, 3 km from the city centre.
Note: By buying a ticket to this museum, you also get free entry to other museums part of Museum Stavanger, if you use your ticket on the same day.
