Christmas at the museum

Pre-Christmas evenings at the museum, wednesday 10. og tuesday 16. of December from 15-18.

You will not get the real Christmas spirit without visiting Santa Claus in the museum garden.
Up through the years, there are many kids in our Parishes that have seen the old farm Santa and seen him get his porridge. Soon it is that time again to come to the museum and help us find the old farm Santa and see if he still likes his porridge.

1814 The Year of Miracles

The incredible year, seen from a local perspective

In connection with Norway’s Constitution jubilee, the museum’s new exhibit shows the dramatic events on the national and international levels throughout the year 1814. At the same time we focus on our own local communities and our representatives to Eidsvoll.
Who were the five representatives from the Nordre Bergenhus county who took part in the national assembly in the spring of 1814? How were they selected? How did they travel to Eidsvoll and what did they actually do there?
