Overview

Norway’s only «living» shipbuilding museum – founded in 1856. The shipyard buildings are from 1872 and the residential houses from 1887. Museum and conservation centre for Møre og Romsdal. Many veteran craft are anchored/moored in the area.

Mellemværftet – literally «the middle shipyard» - is situated in the heart of the city of Kristiansund. Mellemværftet, a section of the regional museum of Nordmøre, is a working museum where the curator wears overalls, a wood working and iron forging museum. It is at one and the same time a living museum from the age of working sail in the 19th century, a working center for the preservation and use of traditional vessels and, finally, a center for maritime culture of all kinds. In commercial operation from 1850 to 1978, the shipyard has been part of regional museum since 1984.
