Overview

Høyanger Industrial Museum is located in the Town Gate in the town of Høyanger, in Vestland County.

The museum was officially opened on the June 21st 1997 by Einar Førde, a Norwegian politician and the head of Norwegian broadcasting.

The ground floor of the museum gives a thorough introduction to the story of how Høyanger went from a small farming village at the beginning of the 20th century to becoming a busy industrial town. One can see how the industry grew and developed into the 1990s.

The 1st floor goes into detail about the daily life of the Høyanger citizens during the rise of the industry. Showing the highlights of the social development, cultural life, housing, the war, and the worker’s union, this exhibit gives valuable insight into how the work life of the Høyanger people also influenced their daily life and habits.

On the ground floor it is also possible to watch films about Høyanger in our film corner.

Free entrance!

On the first floor you will find the tourist office and library, and on the second floor you will find Høyanger municipality's exhibition of the pictures of Gunnar S. Gundersen who grew up in Høyanger.
