The Norwegian Canning Museum, Stavanger Reviews - Write a Review

  • Important part of Stavanger's past before oil. Great engineering examples of the last century and more. Sample some smoked sardines and find out why an Englishman played such an important role there.

  • Nice museum to kill some pasttime. A variety of old fashioned tools and materials are displayed which were used for the canning of sardines. Nothing too funky, just a good sunday activity.

  • A small museum, but worth the 90 NOK entry fee, we spent over an hour here looking around. They had a tour guide to explain the process and old machinery which was awesome. The best part is the old black and white movie upstairs showing the process, don't miss that.

  • Quite a good museum, still I am hesitant to give a perfect score as I would have liked to learn more about the canned fish trade.

  • Excellent demonstration of the various stages of sardine canning. Loved the plastic sardines.
