The Norwegian Canning Museum, Stavanger Reviews

  • I really thought this museum was so cool! I was skeptical about going to a canning museum, but with all of the antique machinery, uniforms, and displays still intact, I really enjoyed it. I recommend asking if anyone is available to give you a tour, I got one and it was very helpful knowing the canning process from beginning to end. Upstairs they have activities for kids as well. I recommend going here to see an important part of Norway history.

  • A nice and cozy place preserved just the way it was from 19th century. The historical canning musuem might sound funny but it’s actually very interesting to see how sardines were being packaged and sold in the local market. Also the technology itself is very fascinating and beholds an interesting historical background. Also, the museum is preserved in the house of one of the farmer and that is kind of special too. The location of museum is right in the city center so, it can be one of the lookout points for people traveling via cruise. Plus they have special discounts for students and senior citizens.

  • A must visit attraction in Stavanger. Far more interesting than you may think and great value. The entry ticket also gives you access to several other local museums.

  • We had a guided tour here and thanks to this funny and smart tour guide,he was able to take us back to the time when fish was as important as upgrading your phone to the latest model. Haha. Overall it was a wonderful and fruitful experience.

  • History of Norwegian sardines canning through the example of one company. The museum is small but well explained. Also suitable for kids - they can even try to fit fake rubber sardines in cans.
