Several of our permanent exhibitions are directly related to Drammen's history.
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.
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.
School is something that absolutely everyone is interested in. Everyone has parents who have gone to school, everyone has gone to school, most have children who go to school.
