Recent scientific research plays a big part for Tromsø University Museum. “We keep updated with developments when presenting our six to 12 new exhibitions every year,” says exhibition manager Per Helge Nylund. This summer, the exhibition Heritage explores the distinction between rubbish and cultural heritage, based on the research project Unruly Heritage, where artists have gathered rubbish from the shoreline and displayed it as art in the museum. The museum is particularly well-suited to children and families. “We want it to be interactive and exciting, with buttons to push, objects to touch, and guided tours,’’ says Nylund.
