    Great for families. You learn a lot of local as well as national and international maritime history. Works in conjunction with hermetikkmuseet.

    Excellent. I truly recommend watching all the films, they are very useful to understand the role of the petroleum in Norway.

    Complete history of how Stavanger transformed from a fishing town to an oil capital. WW2 ship fleets and a history of the evolution of the maritime industry in Stavanger.

    Stavanger Maritime Museum is located in the heart of the city, in the central port. The building is actually part of the old docks, but I will let you find the whole story by visiting the museum. It is exhibiting interesting pieces and I think it worth a visit, being very easily accessible. It is part of the "Museum Stavanger" network, which means that a ticket bought at any of those museums, gives you free access to the other museums if you visit them in the same day. The price is 90 NOK (10 EUR) which is very convenient if you visit a few different museums. Furthermore, with the same ticket you can get a 50% discount at the Norwegian Petroleum Museum.

Where to stay in Stavanger

As with any Norwegian city, the high price of accommodations in Stavanger might be a bit of a shock. Luckily, the Norwegians have such a fondness for outdoor activities that most tourist destinations seem to be well served by several campsites in nearby areas. Rent a tent or a rustic cabin to appreciate Norway’s nature and cut costs. Alternatively, look for hotels in the city center around the Storhaug borough. Slightly outside of Stavanger lies the popular Sola Beach, where high-end hotels put you just steps from the sand.
