Stavanger Maritime Museum
- Museums and Attractions
Stavanger Maritime Museum depicts the development of shipping, commerce and shipbuilding over the last 200 years.
The Maritime Museum specializes in the maritime history of the southwestern part of Norway. The museum has extensive collections of artifacts, archives, photographs, and other documentation from shipping, shipbuilding, and coastal culture.
The museum owns and operates two sailing ships that are actively used to illustrate our cultural maritime heritage: the sloop Anna af Sand that was built in 1848, and the Colin Archer yacht Wyvern from 1897.
The museum is located in seafront warehouses and general retail houses from the 19th century. Most of our exhibitions can be reached by wheel chair users. Visitors with prams/baby carriages are encouraged to borrow buggies in the museum reception.
The museum contains a giftshop and a caféteria with hot/cold beverages and snacks.
