Experience Kistefos-Museum: industrial museum, art Hall and sculpture park
Kistefos Museum gives a calm and informal atmosphere, while at the same time conveying interesting art and history. The museum offer something for all ages; both children and adults. The Kistefos-Museet Foundation was founded in 1996 and was made possible by gifts from Christen Sveaas and Jevnaker municipality. Christen Sveaas is the grandchild of Anders Sveaas, the founder of A/S Kistefos Træsliberi.
The historical buildings after A/S Kistefos Træsliberi all make up the industrial museum, where the old wood pulp mill is the heart of the historical guided tours. Here, you will be part of an animated tour, where several of the machines can be started. This gives a unique experience in Scandinavia’s only intact pulp mill. Kistefos Museum's principal purpose is to preserve and develop what is today a technical and industrial monument of national importance.
Unique sculpture park and influential artists
The sculpture park is part of the abundant and luxuriant park area belonging to Kistefos Museum, and consists of sculptures by Norwegian and international contemporary artists. Several of the sculptures give an interactive and playful experience.
