Within an appropriate merchant's quayside warehouse, this museum makes a good job of displaying Stavanger's maritime history and contemporary oil industry activities. Quality display centres on large and appropriate ship models with some other props and genuine relics, plus authentic room settings and simple, large visual images. The display lighting is first class and adds to the atmosphere in the old buildings. Most information is displayed in Norwegian and English.
There is a small modern cafe on the front (to attract custom of the quay?). Staff loaned me a guide book even though I offered to buy it first.
