We randomly chose Moss as a day trip from Oslo. What a wonderful surprise. The town is very walkable, and after strolling around the pretty town for an hour we happened to pass by this museum and went in.

Because we were the only visitors on that cold winter day, Vibeke gave us a personal and very informative tour of the museum, explaining not only what we saw in the museum (which had once been a factory) but also the many now-closed industrial buildings we had seen on our walk.

Although we barely read Norwegian, some signs are in English and Vibeke is fluent. In any case the visuals tell the story.

In addition to the interesting, informative displays we felt very warmly welcomed. We highly recommend Moss and this museum as a place to visit as a day trip from Oslo. The train station is just a few blocks from the central business district, and perhaps a ten minute walk from the museum.
