What to expect

Learn how oil and gas are formed, how resources beneath the seabed are found, and how drilling and production are conducted.

Exhibits present the technological advances made by this sector, and how oil revenue has affected Norwegian society. They also cover the big climate challenge posed by greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. Original objects, models, films, and interactive exhibits convey the history of oil operations on the Norwegian continental shelf.

Children and youngsters will find many activities at the museum; the rescue chute, catastrophe room, and a play-platform where they can slide and climb.

The museum also provides insights into technological developments in the petroleum sector and the way this industry has affected Norwegian society.

Norway’s oil history began in the mid-1960s when negotiations on dividing lines in the North Sea had been completed. The Ministry of Industry established an oil office and the first licensing round was announced.

The museum presents historical developments from the first rigs drilling in the North Sea, via steel and concrete platforms developed and built-in Norway, to flexible modern production ships and subsea systems which seem to be the future on the Norwegian continental shelf.
