Fjord Norway Vestland BERGEN

Textile Industry Museum - The Museum Centre in Hordaland

  • Salhusvegen 201, Bergen
  • +47 55251080
  •  /  km From You

The old knitwear factory (1858-1989) has now re-opened as a new museum. Visitors can see the whole process from spinning the wool to the finished product

Join us for a tour of Salhus Tricotagefabrik (1859–1989) and learn about the history and importance of the textile industry in Norway. Take in the smells that still linger in the factory after many years of production.

We guide you through the different production processes, from carding and spinning, to winding, knitting and sewing. What does a knitting machine sound and look like? We demonstrate machines that were in use at the factory, which are now used to knit socks and scarves that you can buy in the museum shop.

Watch the film about the history of Salhus, where former workers describe life in the factory town, and see our changing exhibitions in the gallery.

In our cosy café you can enjoy homemade cakes and sandwiches with a view of Salhusfjorden. There is also a children’s corner with toys and drawing supplies for little ones. Access to the café and the shop is naturally free of charge during our opening hours.
