  • A great little museum but could benefit from more translation of the display information.
  • Great for families. You learn a lot of local as well as national and international maritime history. Works in conjunction with hermetikkmuseet.
  • Very interesting museum. Don't forge y to visit when in Stavanger.
  • Nice if you like ship models but otherwise you might want to skip this museum
  • Excellent. I truly recommend watching all the films, they are very useful to understand the role of the petroleum in Norway.

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.
