The women museum is closed in 2016 caused to building of new exhibitions. Welcome in 2017!

The Women’s Museum in Norway, Kvinnemuseet, is located in a beautiful villa in Swiss style, dating from 1857. It is in the vicinity of the 17th century fortress and the well conserved wooden buildings of Øvrebyen, the oldest part of Kongsvinger town.


The raison d’être of The Women’s Museum is to collect documentation of the life and work of women through history up to the present time. The museum also deals with various gender issues – and the changing roles of gender through history. The Women’s Museum hopes to inspire and further a better development in our society for both women and men.


Every summer the museum shows cultural historical exhibitions and/or contemporary art works, together with its four permanent exhibitions. During the 200th Anniversary of the No9rwegian Constitution in 2014 the museum’s exhibition is STEMMER?! /VOICES?!
