English summary

About the museum

The Norwegian Public Road Museum, is one of Norway's largest technical and industrial museum facilities. The museum consists of three museums and a large open air museum. The three museums are; the Norwegian Public Road Museum (NPRM), the Norwegian Rock Blasting Museum(NRBM) and the Norwegian Vehicle Museum (NVM). The museums have a total of almost 5,000 square meters of indoor and outdoor exhibitions. 

(At the museum we have an archive, a photo archive, a library and a workshop.) In the open air museum, you will find a number of buildings that have had an impact on daily life along the roads. Such as ; country stores, petrol station and road warden's residence. There are also exhibited machines that have been used for road construction and rock blasting.

All the museum buildings are within walking distance of eachother and with  easy access from the car park. The Public Road Museum and The Vehicle Museum are open all year (closed on Mondays during the winter), while the Rock Blasting Museum is only open in the summer.

Dogs are allowed in the open air museum, but not in the museum buildings.
