Home / About the Museum

Drammens Museum of Art and Cultural History is a consolidated museum.

We do research about museum's collections, our historic parks and gardens, our open-air museums and our pleasure gardens. The museum has large collections of art, design, handicrafts, silver, glass and earthenware, folk art, church art, furniture and interiors, as well as other cultural-historical objects. We have a significant collection of glass from Nøstetangen.

At the museum in Marienlyst, you will find the Museum building and the neoclassical park, the Lyche pavilion with the Permanent Gallery and a Japanese garden, the historic garden at Gamle Marienlyst, and the open-air museum Hallingtunet, a village garden with buildings from Hallingdal.
