The gallery shop has a wide range of prints, art, books and design products, and in the café, you can enjoy the famous Alby pastry. Nearby, the almost 300 years old manor house Røed Gård has a lively cultural atmosphere where several artists have their own workshops and shops, and where you can find galleries for both handicraft and pictorial art.
At Refsnes Gods, which has an an impeccable location by the Oslofjord, you can spend a romantic weekend with gourmet meals and fine wines from one of Norway’s most exquisite wine cellars. The main building dates from 1767 and the estate has a unique art collection, including works by both Edvard Munch and Andy Warhol.
Moss is one of Norway’s oldest and most versatile industrial centres.

Here, Moss Town and Industrial Museum has permanent exhibitions focusing on the milling, water and paper industry.
In Moss and its surrounding area you will find everything from modern shopping centres to old-fashioned general stores, markets and handicraft shops. There are several options for getting to Moss and around.
