Collection network visited Narvik

13 March 2024

The collection network in Nordland visited Narvik this week. The group consists of representatives from Museum Nord, Nordlandsmuseet, Narviksenteret, Árran Lule Sami Center and Helgeland Museum.

The collection network is very important to ensure close cooperation between the museum institutions in Nordland. They meet several times both physically and digitally during the year. This time a visit to Narvik was on the agenda, with meeting activities at Narviksenteret/Narvik War Museum and at Narvik Museum.

Object of the Week

One of this year’s collaborative projects is the object of the week. Every week in 2024, museums display a museum piece from their collection.

Together with head of outreach and dissemination at Museum Nord, an evaluation was made of this week’s objects from the last three months. We concluded that we are pleased with the engagement around this week’s object, while also trying out some new tricks to reach even more.

The objects from our collections are quite popular. Although the concept of ‘object of the week’ is limited to 2024, we will look at the possibility of continuing the dissemination of the artefact collections next year.
