Centrally placed in downtown Haugesund (close to the church) you find Karmsund folkemuseum. The museum concentrates on the history of the town and region. Exhibitions show important parts of this history: farming, herring fisheries, shipping trade and the development of the town Haugesund. On display is a wealthy citizen's elegant dining room, the oldest shop in town and a classroom from 1910. An authentic 1930-office is on display in the town exhibition. The owner, Moritz Rabinowitz, was a successful businessman in Haugesund. Being a Jew he was deported and killed in the Auschwitz concentration camp in February 1942. In addition to the permanent exhibitions the museum shows varying thematic exhibitions and local films.

The museum offers a special reading space, with books and magazines. Children will enjoy visiting the play corner, or go treasure hunting.
