Description

The Canning Museum is located in the premises of the former canning factory in Øvre Strandgate 88, which is a part of the city known as 'Gamle Stavanger' (Old Stavanger). In this authentic factory environment, the production of canned brisling and fish balls can still be seen.

From the 1890s to approximately 1960, the canning industry was Stavanger's most significant trade. The exhibition provides insight into the environment and the working conditions of the canning factories. The complete process, from the arrival of the fresh fish until the cans leave the factory, can be seen in detail. The machinery is still in good technical condition, and on every first Sunday of the month, as well as Tuesdays and Thursdays during the summer season, the smoking ovens are lit. On these days visitors can taste freshly smoked brisling right from the oven.
