New museum

New premises next to the Norwegian Canning Museum in Old Stavanger are on the drawing board.

The Norwegian Printing Museum held its exhibitions at Sandvigå 11 (previously 24) from autumn 1993 to 2013, but needed to move on account of the area being re-zoned for hotel development.

The museum therefore developed a room-programme with the requirement of a new museum building. The idea has been to install the printing museum in new purpose-built premises in the backyard of the Norwegian Canning Museum.

Plans for the new museum building and new exhibitions are now being realised. Stavanger Municipality, in its cultural plan published in 2012 (Kulturarenaplan 2013-2025), put the project of providing new premises for the Norwegian Printing Museum on its list of priorities for the period 2013-2016.

The architectural firm is Eder Biesel Arkitekter, Stavanger.
