Kurbadet has become a cultural centre. The large wooden building has been restored and now serves as a cultural centre and rehearsal room for local groups. A separate section of the museum tells a little about the history of Kurbadet, with a model of the facility as it appeared in 1900 and a reconstructed spa room. There is also an exhibition of postcards and pictures dating from the spa's earlier incarnations.
Sandefjord became renowned in Europe in the middle of the 1800s as a centre for medicinal baths. Sandefjord Bad was opened as a health resort in 1837, and both royalty and well-known figures from the arts world were among the guests at the spa. The resort remained in operation up until the Second World War.
