The Emigrant Museum collects artifacts in order to document, conserve and preserve material knowledge of Norwegian emigration, return migration, and immigration in the past and present for the future.

In the museum’s collection you can find everything from buildings and farming tools to underwear and sewing needles.

We are constantly working to revise, register and photograph our collections, so that an ever increasing number of these objects will be available online. So far, information on more than 900 of our artifacts are available and searchable on the Digital Museum.
