Norwegian Canning Museum, Stavanger

(4.1/5 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.

  • I would only recommend the visit if you have time to spare, since it's nothing otherworldly. It is a small museum which in his time was manufactured, where we see old machinery that is packed canned. Also can see dependencies of the time as changing rooms, toilets, etc. If you are walking through the area, and spare you half an hour isn't bad, but it is no big deal!

  • This is right in the tourist track, but many go just right past, it's stupid. Here you can if you are right nyrøkt that dagan brissling get herring, at the Museum, you can follow the entire production as it was from the fish to the box. kurositet, they have a commercial from 1909, has anyone seen older.? Above you can see changing rooms and v special days are Habitat House that was open tilde hired. This is the only museum of its kind. Are no other places. Good luck.

  • A bit difficult to understand everything without a guide. To get full value from the visit, get a guide. The museum gets a lot more interesting with a guide.  more »
