“Small but informative”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This small museum is informative and nice, but with a little confusing layout. This is probably meant to be an institution of teaching rather that a tourist magnet, and it works very well for its purpous.

“The museum of Norway's richest archaeological region.”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Rogland the county of Stavanger is archaeologically very rich. The permenant exhibtion is not big, but there are normally temporary exhibitions as well. Good cafeteria which is a nice place to sit down and ponder at what man did during the palaeolithicum.

“give it a try”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

This is a small museum, almost around the corner from where I live.
Now and then I pop in to se if here is something new.
The museum is small and it is all based on Stavanger and Rogaland (county) area. What I don't like is the lack of information on some items that they have showed.
