Discover the relationship between design, technology, science, and regional history at Vitenfabrikken. Featuring hands-on exhibits and interactive presentations, the museum targets mostly children and young people as its audience. Catch a glimpse of the starry sky and explore the universe at the museum’s planetarium, then see the collections of bicycles and porcelain, showcasing the city’s industrial heritage. The adjoining building used to house an oat mill, which operated from 1912 to 1988. You can still see the machinery that has been kept intact since the facility closed down.
