Norwegian Petroleum Museum opened in Stavanger, the oil capital of Norway, in 1999 in a beautiful building symbolising the Norwegian bedrock, the open coastal landscape and the offshore oil installations in the sea. “We show everything from the origin of oil and gas to what petroleum resources have meant to Norway. We also talk about the environmental dilemma. Should we be proud? Is it good? Is it bad? All those questions and topics are things you can explore here,” says Siri Vinje, department head of visitor services.
