Cultural Heritage Days 2022

02 September 2022

Bring your family and spend the Cultural Heritage Days 2022 at our museums. Here you will find an overview of events and programs.

This year, the cultural heritage days team is the driving force, on the occasion of the year of volunteering. For museums, volunteering is a key part of the operation, maintenance and dissemination of cultural and natural history.

– Volunteering is undoubtedly the effort put in by individuals and associations that are the foundation of the museums’ stories and collections. Collections, yearbooks, intangible cultural heritage and other types of dissemination from the various local branches constitute the essence of what we at the museum can tell our guests, whether it comes from organized or unorganized volunteerism, says Jon Framnes, department director in Ofoten.
