Museum Night

Feel the magic - free entrance!

26. Oct 2018 KL. 19:00 - 23:00

Finally October. Finally autumn darkness. Finally Museum Night. Stavanger Museum and the Museum of Archaeology invite you to go behind the facades and staged settings - to have experiences and impressions in all the nooks and crannies of the museums. Use all your senses to explore our museums; Touch, feel, see, hear, taste.

For what actually happens at a museum after darkness falls in the garden, in the basement, and in the attic? There are many exciting and fun activities at both museums this evening. The lectures are in Norwegian, but all other activities are suited to all language groups.
