Stavanger Maritime Museum

Stavanger Maritime Museum Review

Along Strandkaien, warehouses face the wharf. Housed in the only two shipping merchants' houses that remain completely intact is Stavanger maritime museum. Built between 1770 and 1840, the restored buildings trace the past 200 years of trade, sea traffic, and shipbuilding. Visit a turn-of-the-20th-century general store and merchant's apartment, and a sailmaker's loft. A reconstruction of a shipowner's office and a memorial are also here, as are two 19th-century ships, the sloop Anna af Sand, and the Colin Archer yacht Wyvern, moored at the pier.
