This very well-designed museum is devoted to "black gold" and its extraction. It is housed in an edifice by the port of Stavanger and rather resembles a drilling platform waiting to be towed out into the sea. Interactive displays explain technological break-throughs and working conditions at sea. The history of Norwegian petrol is charted through a film, Seaborn. The visit is very instructive and children will particularly like Geo Park which is specially designed for youngsters.
