Norwegian Canning Museum, Stavanger

(4.2/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Walk through the 12-step production process of canning sardines and fish balls at Norwegian Canning Museum. This trade was the leading source of income for locals between 1890 and 1960. One of the seven departments of the Stavanger Museum, this charming attraction was established in 1975. The machinery and tools are consistent with those that would have been used in the 1920s, and are still in working order. Upstairs you'll find a collection of can label designs. As exhibits are not labeled, be sure to grab a brochure at the entrance or take a guided tour. Stop by the gift shop on the way out for some canned sardines for the road. Our Stavanger trip builder makes visiting Norwegian Canning Museum and other Stavanger attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • A museum with lots of history and objects that retain the passage of time, seems compelled to visit it as you can see the experience of the towns of those times of activities performed in terms of work and living in their homes. I think it important to recommend to complete the experience visit the Maritime Museum.

  • The Museum is located in a defunct canning factory in Old Stavanger. It makes you more easily can put you into what it must have been to work here. The Museum is not large, but eventful. Staff welcoming and knowledgeable. I've been here several times over the years. I recommend the first Sunday of the month, when smoking the brislinger.
