The Museum Kystens Arv (Coastal Heritage) preserves traditional boat building by allowing the knowledge to live in the craftsmen who work on site. Visit the boat builders in their workshops and learn more about the craft they do to preserve a important part of the Norwegian cultural heritage.

The Museum Kystens Arv

Museet Kystens Arv is one of the country's finest museums, located south-facing and beautiful down by te sea in Stadsbygd. The museum has one of the country's largest collections of clinker-built raw sailboats and not least an active boat building where you can come in to see the boat builders at work. We have several exhibitions where you can join in on a journey in central Norwegian coastal culture and the use of clinker-built traditional boats. We take care of the noblest of the coastal people's traditions: the craft, the stories and the cooperation. We are a living museum, and offer activities for the whole family. Cafe and museum shop have the same opening hours as the museum.
