The Japanese garden
The Japanese Garden was laid out in 2013 and is open every day and follows the museum's opening hours. Visitors can experience how the landscape changes during the changing seasons.
With this, the museum wants to add a contemporary character to the museum park. A Japanese garden is the natural choice seen in the context of contemporary neo-modernism in architecture and its continuation of Japanese simplicity and elegance.
The garden is a place for an artistic experience and contemplation. It contains an open viewing veranda where the public can sit under a roof, and experience the different qualities that arise in changing seasons. Subtle lighting makes it attractive to the public even in the dark.
Father and daughter explore different levels of presence
We are so lucky in Drammen that we have a unique cultural monument that is used by the city's population almost 150 years after it was built. A group of far-sighted citizens saw the potential that lay in Bragernesåsen.
On Saturday 2 June, we launched the 4th issue of the magazine MUSEET - this year with 4 pages of extra reading material.
It is, of course, a hopeless question to answer, what a whole century looks like. And it must also be asked, when did the 20th century actually begin and when does it end?
Drammens Museum has been a museum since 1908, and we like to say that we have approx. 50,000 items in our collection. In the collection we have "ones" within their genre, such as trophies from Nøstetangen, silver objects from famous silversmiths in Drammen, rose-painted objects by Herbrand Sata, textiles woven by Frida Hansen and paintings by JC Dahl.
What do we put in the concept of identity? In a series of lectures, we have invited researchers in various disciplines to share their knowledge with us and the public at our Culture Evenings based on the concept of identity.
