Preus Museum offers visitors many exciting experiences within the expanded field of photography: from the earliest technical and scientific experiments to modern photographic art that has pushed back the boundaries of what a photograph can be.

With its extensive collection of both national and international matters, the museum covers all aspects of the history of photography. The museum has two galleries with temporary exhibitions; a basis exhibition and a specialist library of international standard. A national centre for the preservation of photographs, which offers expertise in the treatment and preservation of photographic material.

Preus Museum is located in the idyllic Cultural Park, Karljohansvern in Horten. The museum building, which was previously a grain store for the Royal Norwegian Navy, dates back to the 1860s and was adapted for museum purposes in 2001 by architect Sverre Fehn. 

It is possible to have a cup of coffee in our pittoresque café.

The museum is closed last weekend before Christmas Eve, Christmas Eve, 1st and 2nd Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, 1st New Year's Day, May 1st and May 17th.
