If it rains (and it does quite often in Stavanger) seek shelter here. This cultural center has everything you look for and still some surprises: it has a cinema, a gallery, two cafes, library with some great and helpful librarians and people any time of the day.

This place is one of the meeting points for the locals in Stavanger. There is a cafe, library, cinemas and newsstands. This building is made of concrete and has a special architecture. It is big and have some nice sitting areas. There are lots of cafes around this place and is in the middle of shopping area.

We visited this excellent multi-cultural complex in December and were very impressed indeed with the cinema and library. There was also a gingerbread house city on display that was absolutely charming.

Its a great place to peruse all the different books. The library section covers 3 floors. There is a cinema-complex on the ground floor (bit out of date). Excellent with the opening hours being quite late, even the library stays open until 21.

A library with loads of seating options, a cinema, reliable free wifi, decent cafe - what's not to like? Other than the restroom, which seemed a complicated affair - but this seemed to be a feature of many places I went to - you either need exact change or a code.

You will definitely be surprised how good cinema we have here in Stavanger! There are new and very comfortable screens with a `lux sallen` where you get inside wide cozy adjustable chair and help yourself with complimentary coffee, tea or sweets...What else a man can wish :D! World class cinema! Tickets could be cheaper though, so people would go more... More

The library has been voted Best Of several times. And well deserved! They are modern, people friendly, have a terrific music department, and they do digital books as well as paper. Also great international department, exhibitions, debates, great café, relax areas and family activities. Very very good!

I love the Norwegian culture of keeping culture going and with the Kulturhus in Stavanger the tradition keeps on going. The building is elegant, clean and modern and houses both a book/magazine library and music/film library. It offers free Wi-Fi and plenty of room to work and/or read.
