    This building used to be one of Stavanger's many canning factories. From the 1890's to about 1960 the canning industry was the most important industry in Stavanger. After 1960 the oil industry took over...
    In the museum you can see the whole process of how the fish was canned.

    The museum is located in the old town of Stavanger.

    The museum exhibits machinery and stories from the history of norwegian sardines. The buildings used to be the largest sardine factory in scandinavia (Bjelland).

    Directions: Right in the middle of Old Stavanger ('Gamle Stavanger'). The neighborhood is also worth a visit.
