This was disappointing. The other stavanger museums excel by focussing on one topic. But this a general small museum with an incoherent mix of displays that don't fit together. One to avoid.

Loved our visit. The children’s museum was particularly good and it was just what we needed in a rainy morning. Very interactive, my daughter particularly liked the castle!

This may or may not be a good museum, it does NOT open on a Monday which was the day our cruise ship visited Stavanger

We had a rainy day in Stavanger, a perfect day for museums. The Stavanger Museum has interesting exhibits on a wide range of subjects and interests. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Stavanger Museum. I would recommend it.

Thoroughly enjoyed this Museum based in an old fish warehouse dating from about 1770. Not fusty, dusty or remotely boring! Lots of interesting artefacts and objects reflecting the history of Stavanger from its early days as a canning and fishing city until last century when...More

This covers from the start of Stavanger history. 4 stories, covering a verity of areas (wwII, industry, nature, etc.) Very child friendly, with many hands on displays.

Our Airbnb host gave us a museum pass so it was free for us. Sorry I don’t know the price.
