With a great location by the waterfront on the eastern side of the Stavanger center peninsula, you will find the impressive Norwegian Petroleum Museum. It was opened by His Majesty King Harald in 1999. The museum is a combination of aluminium, steel and different types of stone and was designed by architects Lunde & Løvseth. It is an interpretation of the Norwegian bedrock, the open costal landscape and the offshore oil installations. Inside, you first face the information and ticket office. The entrance fee is NOK 150 for adults, NOK 75 for children. Family tickets are available. The museum celebrate the best of the Norwegian oil industry, but also make us remember some of the worst, like the Alexander Kielland disaster and the Sleipner breakdown, where the whole construction sunk in Gandsfjorden and ended the era of the huge concrete platforms. Most of the museum, however, gived the visitors a lot of knowledge and information of the petroleum industry, its history and how important it has been for the development of Norway and the Norwegian society. In the museum, there are a lot of things for visitors to try out, like entering an old escape pod and test your skills in a training escape room. if you enjoy detailed miniature models, you will be spoiled here. The details on some of them are amazing. In addition to the huge models, there are smaller models of all the different platform types which are or have been installed on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Some of the models explains the different steps in the construction of a condeep platform, in this case Troll, one of the largest ever made. (Watch our video). After you have explored the main exhibition floor, you are ready to visit the outdoor rigs. You cross over by a small indoor bridge, designed like the helicopter ride out to the platforms in the North Sea. Here you can explore elements from the offshore platforms, like control rooms from different time periods, varioud equipment and different outdoor facilities like the escape chute. The last exhibition area on the rigs is really impressive with some great digital animations of both the reservoirs and the technology used in an amazing screening room. The museum also have a kids playground area and by the ticket office a small but cool gift shop with books and great gadgets. Next to the gift shop you can enter the Stavanger branch of the famous Norwegian restaurant chain Bølgen & Moi, which also has a huge outdoor area with tables under some cool pavillions.
