The Norwegian Maritime Museum (Norsk Maritimt Museum) stands as a beacon of maritime heritage, offering a rich tapestry of exhibits, films, and publications that narrate the significant aspects of Norwegian and international maritime history. This nationwide museum, originally established as the Norsk Sjøfartsmuseum in 1914 and renamed in 2010, is a dedicated steward of maritime cultural heritage, entrusted with the collection, research, and dissemination of knowledge related to maritime cultural relics and coastal culture.

The Norwegian Maritime Museum operates under the mandate of the Norwegian government as an archaeological administrative museum, responsible for the management of maritime cultural monuments and other underwater cultural heritage in the country's ten southernmost counties. With its active involvement in vessel conservation and its array of exhibitions, events, and activities, the museum stands as a dynamic arena for maritime experiences and learning.
