The museum's magazine MUSEET is now on its way out to the mailboxes in Drammen.
Drammens Museum has received an important grant for listed buildings from Viken County Municipality on behalf of the National Heritage Board in 2021. In addition, the museum has received a significant award from the UNI Foundation.
In the spring of 2020, we got a collaboration with Jasmin Women's Network, Women's Resource Center who wanted a meaningful activity once a week. The idea of a separate herb bed that they could plan and care for together was a strong wish from the women and we managed to get it in place in June 2020.
The barn from Straumen in Norway has been completely restored with several extensive and necessary improvements. Traditional craftsmen Audun Eken, Eivind Vinger and Thomas Løken have restored the log building which is now secured for the future.
We have the pleasure of presenting new works in the collection in the Exhibition Room in the Museum Building. The purchased works are by the artists Ulla-Mari Brantenberg, Marit Tingleff, Ann-Cathrin November Høibo and Tron Meyer.
