The Konventionsgarden was built in 1778 and owned by the Anker family. In 1814, Norway broke away from the union with Denmark and wrote and signed its own constitution. However, Norway was brought into a union with Sweden. King Christian Fredrik stayed at the Konvention for many weeks during the negotiations with the Swedish crown prince Karl Johan. On the 14th August, “the Konvention at Moss” was signed. It saved the Norwegian constitution and the parliament house. The Konvention is available to for public viewing only when advertised. The tourist office Visit Moss has launched a phone service, where you can listen to information about the Konvention. To hear information about it, ring 53 00 12 00 and dial the code 5243 when requested. The service costs that of a local call.

This old historic building features Norwegian architecture. Placed right by Mossefossen (the city's waterfall), it is a tall building fitting right in with the adjacent houses and surroundings. Heart of the city.
