Description

Norway is worldwide known for its celebrations throughout the nation of the Constitution Day on the 17th May with parades and national costumes.

Nearly 200 years ago the reason for these spectacular celebrations, the Constitution, was signed on the 17th May in Eidsvoll Manor, and hence the Eidsvoll Manor was the centre of events in the dramatic year of 1814 – a decisive one in modern Norwegian history. Ever since, the Eidsvoll Manor has been one of our most famous national symbols and dearest national treasures.
Our visitors centre Wergelands Hus offers you not only an engaging experience in our exhibition on contemporary Norwegian history, but also a perfect place for a coffee break in our modern cafeteria over viewing the river. In the 18th century ambience of our museum shop you will find an unusual selection of gifts and souvenirs.

Although history has made Eidsvoll Manor important, the building itself is an extremely interesting place to visit because of its architecture, which is quit unique in Norway. There will be even more to see once restoration work is completed in time for the bicentenary celebrations in 2014!
