The Museum, set in a beautiful maritime area, traces the lives of Øygarden’s coastal inhabitants from the ice age until the present day.
There are few places where the timeline of history is as visible as at the Coast Museum in Øygarden. At the museum, which is situated amid the modern oil enterprises, you can see how Øygarden’s inhabitants have lived and survived from exploiting the area’s rich natural resources. Through exhibitions, film displays, guided tours and even cycle trips, you get to actively study the history of the region’s coastal people. The struggle for survival in this harsh environment has had a huge influence on its people and culture since its very first inhabitants. The distinctive maritime area in which the museum is situated dates from an age before roads and bridges. A trip to the Coast Museum can also be combined with a fascinating tour of the oil and gas facilities at Kollsnes and the salmon visitor center in Ovågen.
The museum has an auditorium, conference rooms, amphitheatre and cafe. The Coast Museum is an excellent choice for conferences, seminars, meetings, concerts, etc.
Open by appointment throughout the year.
