Ecclastastical Art

Permanent exhibition

Seek the beauty of medieval church art


A medieval triptych and sculptures from churches in Northern Norway are displayed in the smaller of the Ecclastastical Art galleries. Most of the medieval art is made in Germany, a memory of the close connection between Norway and Germany through the Hansa League in the medieval times.

The larger gallery contains art from the Lutheran era, where many objects are made locally in Norway, with great diversity of designs and quality. Nevertheless, these objects tell fascinating stories showing the importance of religion for the people of the past.

All texts are found in English as well as Norwegian.
